This is a very nice local museum with great pictures that captures yesteryear. The staff is very informed of the community and have good stories if you ask. Kids really seem to appreciate coming here from what I notice.

Some very cool stuff from yesteryear and helpful staff. If you would like a history lesson on America's Greatest Family Resort, stop on by and spend an hour or more learning all about this wonderful seashore resort.

Actually a very nice little museum. My 7-year old had been asking me a ton of questions about how the boardwalk got built, he found many answers here.

I've been going to Ocean City for over 40 years, yet I still want something by stopping in this neat little place.

Great place to visit. Lots of artifacts and the story of the wreck of the Sindia on17th street beach in 1901. Princess Grace of Monaco once lived here and they have some of her personal items. Admission was free, which surprised me. Nice idea. Worth the visit. Great collection of storm photos.
