This museum is small but incredibly cool. They have a nice selection of old local neon signs. The collection of mid-mod lamps which I aDORE is the best I ever saw. If you like the atomic era in all it's outrageous glory, do not miss this place !

We visited the Doo Wop Museaum and were very disappointed in the visit. We are both fans of the Doo Wop era and found more delight in drving around taking photos of the remaining Doo Woop motels and signs.

I started going to Wildwood as a teenager and enjoyed seeing all the reminders of the past. The history of Wildwood is memorialized for future generations.

I'm a fan of the Doo-Wop era till the cows come home, and was looking forward to visiting the museum and taking the bus tour since first visiting Wildwood back in May. The museum is very cute--however 10-20 minutes is long enough for a self-guided tour. Lots of great furniture pieces and decor, and the volunteer that was there was... More

This free museum is definitely worth a visit. It captures a period of time many of us lived through but did not realize then how wonderful it really was. Plenty of items on display to reminisce over relating to the history of Wildwood and past times. But even first time Wildwood visitors would appreciate seeing this collection. There is a... More

Having traveled and stayed in Wildwood Crest for most of my life this Museum brings back the DOO Wop signs and symbols that I remember as a child. Seeing the Lollipop, Hialeah Resort Motel and Swan signs made me realize what a special time and place the Shore is to so many people. A BIG thanks to the Morey family... More

I ordered tickets for the Doo Wop tour, Shirley Cruz deducted it from checking account. The result no tickets, no tour. I called her twice and she said she would send them. Where does that money go? I talked to other people and this has happened to other people.N.J. gets a bad rap as it is, this makes it worse.The... More

The fee is $12.00 for a 1 and a half hour tour. The tour leave at 20:00 hours. Went I bought my ticket, the brochure mentioned a trolley tour. But as I was waiting for the trolley, a school bus with black tinted window park in front of the tour center. I had a discussion with the tour guide concerning... More
