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!

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.
