  • The Old Coast Guard Station was a nice place to visit on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk. Only $4 to get in. It's a bit small, and maybe not terribly interesting to someone who isn't knowledgeable of mar...  more »
  • Fascinating museum to learn about the rescues performed by the brave Coast Guardsmen who patrolled this area. Well worth the stop-in and to visit the cute gift shop. 
  • Took my father in law. We had a wonderful time, lots of informative displays. The locations is on the beach and is the perfect location for further exploring.

  • Great place to visit. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Interesting place to learn about how boat rescues happened and the history about the area.
  • Very rude staff of women. An older gentleman took us on a tour and he was knowledgeable and friendly however the old women and one slightly younger women who contributed no knowledge but much unprofessionalism. They need more actual veterans or intelligent people who know and appreciated this place.
  • A detailed history of a bygone era. If you're a history buff and was previously in or is in the US Coast Guard this is a cool place to visit. Memorabilia and photos from a time when the USCG was The Lifesaving Service. The building itself reminds me of my old station in NC: Oregon Inlet.. (the old one under the dunes...south of the bridge.)
  • Nice place, but you ought to pay 4 bucks for each person!
  • highly receommended
