“A Visit To The Past”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

$3. Probably the best $3 spent at the beach. Take an hour to step back in time to see how Ocean City has evolved over the years. Amazing history. You don't know what you don't know until you make a visit.

“A walk back in time”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I have been going to OC for a number of years and this was the first time I went into this museum. It was full of OC memorabilia and historical artifacts that were truly enjoyable and educational.

“Delivered Far More Than Expected”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

A small and inexpensive museum on the boardwalk. It provides a great history of OC and the role nature played in building what we see today. It also has a great history of the lifesaving activities in days of shipwrecks.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

This museum was very interesting and provided a great deal of history about Ocean City, Life Saving Stations on the east coast, and surfing. Well worth the $3.

“Memorabilia plus”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Great factoids and pics from yesteryear! For $3 admission, there is a lot of info on two floors. A must is Laughing Sal on the 2nd floor.....creeeeepy! There is also a small aquarium with some fish and eels that is interesting. Clips and newspaper articles about hurricanes that have hit the boardwalk. Worth your time.
