The museum has photos of the boardwalk and all the bars and nightclubs throughout the years. My husband and i met 43 years ago in Wildwood and spending a half day at the museum we re-lived our childhood into our teen years. From all the amusements on piers no longer there or all the musical groups we saw at the... More

Spent a rainy day exploring the memorabilia of Wildwood. We really enjoyed the old boardwalk photos as well as the photos of Motels long gone.

If you spent any time in Wildwood back in the 1960's, you'll love this museum. There are pictures of all the wonderful old motels that have been torn down. Also mementos from the old ride piers on the boardwalk and restaurants that are now gone. It's a great place to relive childhood memories!

You can get lost in this place just browsing and going back in time. Love looking at old photos of how Wildwood looked years ago.

This is a wonderful museum dedicated to the history of Wildwood. There are dozens of large binders of photos broken down into categories - the boardwalk, demolished motels, fires, amusement piers, etc. They're also broken down by year - the 30's, 40's etc. You can literally spend hours looking through Wildwood's history. There are two long tables and several chairs... More

Away from all the hub-bub - a couple of blocks from the boards is a small building what is a "DO NOT MISS" experience in Wildwood. Wildwood has a rich, fascinating - and at times humorous history. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. You will be glad you took the time to go.. especially if you love history - and... More

Because of the rainy day we stopped here for a visit. Very knowledgable and enthusiastic staff to explain exhibits. Fascinating photos and memorabilia from the last hundred years. A wonderful place to spend a couple of hours when it's raining.

Prior to visiting the museum and going through the exhibits and artifacts, I never knew that Wildwood or Holley Beach as it was called a hundred years ago, had so much history. The museum has so much primary source information on display. It covers the history of the area in detail from the Lanape Indians, to the settlers, to the... More

If you have ever visited Wildwood on a Vacation, you must visit the museum. Everything past & present is available for you to check out. If just curious about your favorite hotel, motel or amusement ride, they will provide you with the history. It is free to look around but a donation would be appreciated. Just a fun place to... More
