The lady at the front desk of the Hotel Rehoboth suggested paying a visit to the museum since we'd never been, so we decided to do just that. And we're so glad we did because we spent at least 30 minutes walking around the place and learning so much more about Rehoboth Beach. I particularly enjoyed the postcards exhibit, as... More

This museum is right next to the Chamber of Commerce. It gives the history of Rehoboth Beach, some of it through post cards. We liked it because we like history. It is not large. The time you spend will depend on how thorougly you examine the artifacts. The staff was very friendly and referred us to other plances. It's not... More

Fascinating resources and information about the history of Rehoboth, and the staff can be helpful too. Curious about the place you are visiting, beyond the beach and the food? This is where to go. Easy to get there by bus, on foot, just off the canal as you enter RB from the Coastal Highway, or walk from your hotel/motel/B&B. No... More

This museum offers an educational and fun way to spend an hour or so.there is a good overview of how rehoboth came to exist and was almost wiped away by a 1962 storm.exhibits include old postcards and pictures. a short film offers eyewitness accounts of that storm! the manager,nancy will take your picture so it looks like an old photo/postcard.

Spent a great "show & tell" evening here with some very interesting people. Some of the things that people brought in from their own collections was being donated to the museum, some was going back home. The museum is a work in progress.

This was the perfect museum to visit in a rainy morning with a 5 & 8 year old. It was just the right size with some interactive things to do to keep the kids engaged. There was a cute scavenger hunt and then a little photo booth. Very entertaining while my husband I walked around and looked at the museum.... More

My husband and I enjoy museums, and we thought a rainy day at the beach would be the perfect time to go to this one. The museum is very small, but we found it interesting. There is an option for a short overview tour, and the staff member who provided it was friendly and helpful. It is my understanding that... More

This is an interesting place with changing exhibits and fun programs. More adult oriented programs but older kids would like some of the exhibits.
