Resort Museum Holds Open House

OCEAN CITY — The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum is holding an Open House in recognition of International Museum Day on May 18 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

This free event will celebrate the 2019 International Museum Day theme, “Museums As Cultural Hubs: The Future Of Tradition.”

The role of museums in society is changing. Museums keep reinventing themselves in their quest for becoming more interactive, audience focused, community oriented, flexible, adaptable and mobile. They have become cultural hubs functioning as platforms where creativity combines with knowledge and where visitors can also co-create, share and interact.

The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum is committed to preserving the culture and traditions that lie within Ocean City and the Worcester County coastal region.  On May 18, the museum is asking visitors to play an active role in preserving history by sharing their favorite Ocean City traditions. Guests will receive free admission to the museum and an opportunity to write their story in the museum’s story log book.

The written tradition will be archived and preserved along with the collection of artifacts. Do you stay at the Atlantic Hotel the first of August every year? Have you eaten Thrasher’s French Fries and Dumser’s ice cream and rode Trimper’s Rides with the entire family every summer for the past 20 years? Are you a local who rides your bike on the Boardwalk and eats lunch at Soriano’s in the off season? The museum wants to hear from vacationers and locals alike what their favorite   Ocean City traditions are.
