About Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum

Location:

2401 Atlantic Avenue, Virginia Beach, VA 23451, US

Mission Statement

The Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum honors and preserves the history of Virginia's coastal communities and maritime heritage.

Description

The Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum is a maritime museum located at 24th Street on the Boardwalk. The museum explores Virginia's coastal communities and maritime heritage. It honors our past and anchors to our community.

The museum is housed in a 1903 Life-Saving Service building, one of the predecessors to the Coast Guard. Our Surf & Rescue gallery features the men who lived and worked here, as well as the lives they saved. It also highlights the history of the other lifesavers on the beach - our lifeguards. A final exhibit reveals how rescue techniques sparked the development of East Coast surfing culture right here in Virginia Beach. The upper gallery explores many facets of Virginia Beach history - from coastal storms to the development of the boardwalk to beach vacations through the years.
