Take some time to reminisce with our Ocean City Memories or let yourself travel back through time to join the heroic Surfmen of the US Life-Saving Service on a rescue mission. Preview some of our exhibits or look up family history in our genealogy section.
 
When in Ocean City, Maryland join us by taking a tour of the Life-Saving Station Museum. You’ll find captivating exhibits featuring the history of the U.S. Life-Saving Service and Ocean City History. We also have on display a Mermaid Collection, Shipwreck Artifacts, Sands of the World, and Bathing Fashions. Aquariums featuring local marine life are a favorite for young and old alike. There is something here for everyone. The meticulously restored building that was once scheduled for demolition, is now a monument to Ocean City History.
