The Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum Has A Fascinating And Haunting History
Virginia has an incredible collection of unique museums that offer insight into our state’s residents, history, and culture. Perhaps one of the most fascinating and underrated of them all is the Virginia Beach Surf & Rescue Museum. Located right on Atlantic Avenue, this building once operated as the Old Coast Guard Station. Today, visitors can learn about the history of the beach as well as the area’s maritime heritage.
