You can spend a very enjoyable hour or two learning about Rehoboth history in this museum.. The exhibits are nicely presented, the staff is knowledgeable, and admission is pay what you wish. It is possible to visit several times since the exhibits do change.

We were greeted by a friendly host (Virginia) who gave us an overview of the museum. There is a very interesting exhibit about the storm of '62. Admission is by donation.

Small but interesting museum with particular emphasis on the role of the railroad in developing a beach area for revivals in the 19th century and escaping from the big cities of Baltimore and Wilmington in the early 20th Century.

This is a very interesting place if you love history or want to learn more about Rehoboth. You can enter by donation. The workers there are very knowledgeable and love to share their knowledge. But it is small.
