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.

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
