  • We opted to enter the museum, it was only $5 and learned so much about the local fishing industry and how folks were saved prior to the Coast Guard. Self guided and very interesting.  more »
  • Enjoyed the visit to this Life-Saving Museum. Interesting to see how this has evolved over the years. It's directly on the boardwalk at the Inlet so it's easy access.  more »
  • Beautifully preserved life saving station. A must see to learn about the people who staffed the forerunner of the Coast Guard, using hand tools and man power to save people from wrecks and drowning.  more »
  • Very kid friendly. The gift shop attendant was very helpful and was great at getting my kids involved in the museum scavenger hunt. On the adult side, a lot of neat information about the history of saving lives from the ocean. The cost is $5 per adult and under 11 is free. The prices in the gift shop aren't too terrible. Worth checking out! Oh, and the A/C works really well!! :)
  • This is the best deal on the boardwalk. I have never been to a better small museum. My daughter loved feeding the horseshoe crab and the little kid area. The prices in the gift shop are also the best around. My wife and I loved it as well. A+ 5 stars.
  • This fun little museum offered a lot of insight on the history of ocean city, along with many fun activities for kids of all ages and even adults. The customer service was absolutely outstanding and everyone there seemed to be in a good mood. The museum arouses a certain nostalgia inside of everyone who enters and the employees certainly play a part in that. On top of all that, the prices are ridiculously low for such a fun time and children 11 and under are completely free to get in. I highly recommend anyone visiting ocean city to stop by this place and check it out. It will be worth your time.
  • Great for family. Lots of fun and activities especially for children. Awesome atmosphere. Make sure just in case the weather gets cold ALWAYS CARRY EXTRA CLOTHES ( BLANKET, JACKET AND A PAIR OF PANTS) 😂👍😎❤️
  • Really fun place to check out! We did the scavenger hunts for both young kids and big kids and learned a lot about what it took to save lives back in the day. There is some great items of historical significance specific to Ocean City and it was very interesting to see how people have enjoyed the island over the years. If you have ever wondered what the sand of different beaches from all over the world look like, look no further, because they have samples here that come in a range of color and coarseness. The aquarium room is small but has some really cool species that can be found locally in the wild and the kids were so excited to see everything so close. The kids also had fun putting on the captain hat for a picture in the kids room where they also had a chance to “save” a stuffed bear. We had a lot of fun here and it also served as a good place to ride out the brief squall that was happening outside. 😃
