Exhibits and Collections

The Museum’s permanent exhibit is “Sea View and Salt Air: A History of Ocean City”. This exhibit features a historical correct timeline of Ocean City history that integrates artifacts and photographs from the Museum’s collection along with large print storyboards to introduce the visitor to the history of Ocean City. We have a large display of artifacts from the Sindia, a four-masted barque that grounded itself on the Ocean City’s 17th Street beach in 1901. The Sindia exhibit includes an 8’x 8’ stained glass window showing the ship under sail, the original figurehead and other artifacts and photographs from the Ship. Our collection also includes artifacts donated to us from the families of the Lake Brothers,the four Methodist Ministers who founded our town. We have a full assortment of antique childrens toys and over 8,000 photographs in our colleciton. Also featured in the Museum are temporary exhibit areas for exhibits on special topics related to history of Ocean City such as the Ocean City High School’s memorabilia and Transportation in early Ocean City. Ocean City Historical Museum also offers a fully stocked gift shop and a modern research library that includes Genealogy research tools.
