Ocean City Life- Saving Station Museum
Literally the last stop on the southern end of the Boardwalk next to the inlet, the museum is a first stop for those who want to know more about Ocean City’s history.
Overseen by curator Sandra Davis Hurley, the museum occupies the old Life-Saving Service (later Coast Guard) building built in 1891. The museum opened in 1978.
The museum explores the history of the U.S. Live-Saving Service and its dramatic rescues as well as the resort’s colorful past. Its gift shop offers books and nautical items reflecting the town’s heritage.
