We had a nostalgic visit to the museum in July 2014. The archives and displays took me back to my childhood and the Wildwood of the 1970's. My 7 year old son loved seeing daddy reminisce over those places and things he did when he was his age!

This is what a museum should be. The place is huge yet still feels as if it's bursting at the seams with exhibits and other historic material. One could spend hours looking through the dozens of photo albums without getting up to walk around the three rooms that comprise the facility. The staff is always friendly and eager to engage...

Went here expecting just a few things from the past. Instead there is a goldmine of information! Binders full of news articles, pictures, postcards, brochures from boarding houses, hotels, motels, the boardwalk, you name it. Models of famous boardwalk rides. I wish I knew about this sooner, I would have devoted a few hours there, instead of the short time... More

I spent summers 1947-1964 (infant to age 17) in Wildwood, NJ. My mom was originally from there and still had family living there. Going to this Museum is taking a long walk through my childhood. Clean, organized and well staffed this is truly the place to visit if you have any connection to Wildwood.

This museum is incredible, also the Island Breeze Motel located @ 411 E. 26th avenue N. Wildwood is the "BEST VALUE" for your money. Visit us @ islandbreezemotel.net or call us @ 609 522-2700

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
