This museum is loaded with the history of Wildwood. If you love the Wildwood, then this museum is a must stop on your next visit. My son and I usually try to make into the museum at least every other year as new "old" things are added all the time. We can spend over 2 hours just pouring over the... More

Excellent collection of local memorabilia attractively displayed. Appreciated the opportunity to purchase some "excess memorabilia" at their Yard Sale section. The staff are very willing to assist visitors in finding exactly what they are searching for. If not in a group, we would have stayed much longer to reminisce.

Lots of local history as well as many memories of this famous vacation town. Filled with family memories and businesses that made the Wildwoods great. Only downsize is that it's too small. I'd love to see more, more, more displays!

I enjoy learning about local history on every trip I take. I had high hopes for this museum before I arrived. Unfortunately, the curators seem to take the approach that "more is better." Exhibits & pictures are poorly grouped/explained. It feels more like visiting a personal photo gallery. I would NOT recommend this to others.

If you want to see and hear about the history of Wildwood the Boyer Museum has it all. The staff is very friendly and they have so many things to look at from the past. A must see for all Wildwood fans!

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!
