The Rehoboth Beach Museum is the home of the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society. The Society’s mission is to preserve and showcase artifacts that illustrate the development of the community. Society members receive free museum admission, newsletters, free admission to lectures, and advance notice of ticketed events.

The Museum is in the former ice house where ice was cut from local lakes and stored in a wooden structure insulated with sawdust during the late 1800′s and early 1900′s.  Year-round exhibit topics included sand pails, bathing suits and surfing.

Museum hours are Monday, Thursday, Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Museum is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until after Memorial Day Weekend.
