This was a lot of fun and very educational about Oceancity. You will be shocked of all the fun exhibits they have in such a small building. It is very inexpensive too. Great for kids!
This is a must visit on your vacation in Ocean City MD. Learn all about the early days of Ocean City, the history of lifeguarding, see lots of cool displays...
