Cool little museum. 3 rooms packed with memorabilia, and many, many pictures from the history of Wildwood. This included quite a few binders just packed with pictures and postcards, and all marked. I was easily able to find a few pics of an old motel my family used to stay in when I was kid. Great little stop a couple... More

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.
