I have wanted to visit this place all my life and was very disappointed with what was inside. To get upstairs you have to climb steep steps with only 1 rail on 1 side.

Stopped in here on a drizzly afternoon to kill some time. Really nothing special. Although there some nice old displays.

If you chance to walk to the end of the OC Boardwalk, you'll find the Life-Saving Station Museum. Here can can learn about the history of the Life Guards and the Stations supporting them. It's a Must-See attraction at Ocean City.
