  • This was a very cute, but informative museum that we visited on our way to leave the Boardwalk for the day. The man at the desk was super helpful, and if we had more time he definitely would have...

  • Very informative about the history but the scavenger hunt was the best for my 4-year old. She had a great time running around looking for Sherlock the Shark.

  • Great little museum to visit with the wife and kids. Lots unique items and pictures to see having to do with information about OCMD's life saving history as far as the coast guard is concerned from the beginning till the present. Their is a very friendly staff on hand and the museum it self houses everything from a small aquarium to boats used in the past to save lives to samples of sands from around the world. Definitely a must see with 2 floors of so much to look at from floor to ceiling.
  • Lots of history here! People here are very well educated on the history and purpose this building served. It's only $5 to come in and see the museum for as long as you like. It's 2 levels of unique history to see. Most if not all the money goes back into the preservation and keeping up with running this museum and all the other east coast life saving stations. There's even some hands on learning upstairs in the kids section. While upstairs be sure to say hi and have a laugh with Mrs Sal. Downstairs there are a few sea creatures to visit! If you have any questions just ask the staff as they are more then happy to answer any questions you might have. So come on out and support a local museum and a big piece of history!!
  • We went for the morning feeding, and the kids had a really good time!! They have age appropriate scavenger hunts and get a special prize at the end. The feeding was fun to watch and we learned a lot! Everyone working was super friendly, to!
  • Many years of coming to Ocean City and I am so glad I finally came into the museum. This historic building is well maintained and an important piece of history. The gentleman at the front desk was so kind and helpful. The exhibits were informative and interesting and I was in awe learning about all of the history, which I never knew before. There was a nice gift shop and I went to purchase a book, and found out it would be free if I became a member. I didn’t realize membership was an option and I’m glad I was told about it. I joined as a family membership and ended up getting two great books. I look forward to coming back with my husband.
  • My family found the life saving museum to be interesting. The kids enjoyed learning about some of OC's history. I wish we had known before going that you can get coupons for free admission at the visitor info booth on the boardwalk right by N Division St. I found it worth the cost of admission regardless and will probably visit again in a few years.
