What Makes the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum so Fascinating?

If you take a journey to the southern end of the Ocean City Boardwalk, you can begin another journey back in time at the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum. It overlooks the inlet, making it perfect for either a starting or ending point for your boardwalk adventures. Best of all, it’s an incredible attraction, in itself, that only costs $5 for adults and $3 for children from 12 to 18 years old (children under 11 enjoy free admission!) Take a look inside the next time you’re in the downtown area and discover a whole world of artifacts and information you never knew existed.
