Lots of interesting history and being in Surf City, there is no better place to get the oceans vibe. This is where surfing lives.

If you walk by too quickly you can miss this little gem. Lots of old photos and memorabilia celebrating the history of surfing.

It doesn't state outside, but it is a $2.00 entrance fee because they are a nonprofit musem. If you are interested in surfing and those who came before you and those who are present you will thoroughly enjoy this tour. Small but very informative.

Really interesting small museum with a 15-minute video. Memorabilia is attractively arranged, & it's easy to get up close. Good location just blocks from Huntington Beach, where there was plenty of action. "Surf City" was preparing for the Open just days away.
