Rehoboth Museum Is Free to All
Admission to the Rehoboth Beach Museum at 511 Rehoboth Avenue is now free for all visitors.
Museum Director Nancy Alexander said, “We want to encourage more vacationers and residents alike to make visiting—and revisiting—the museum a must-do activity when they are downtown, and we think a no-charge admission policy will help achieve that goal”
Alexander said, “The Rehoboth Beach Museum has many stories to tell that we think are of interest to everyone—new visitors curious about the town’s turn-of-the-century Camp Meeting history, multi-generational vacationers who want to share Beach Patrol and Funland memories from the ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s, or beach and beach-town lovers in general.”
“Our Board believes that the no-charge policy will encourage more people to stop in often on drives in or out of town, or to think of the Museum as a fun place to cool-down when they want to take a mid-day break from the hot beach and sun. Easy access, free parking at the Visitor Center/Museum parking lot will facilitate this,” she said.
As is customary with most admission-free museums, voluntary contributions from museum visitors will be encouraged through a “donation jar.”
Summer hours for the Museum are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday-Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
