If you are a 50's-60's enthusiast (like me) you MUST stop in to see all the memorabilia here! There is a wonderful electronic video board that you read and then click an area to watch and listen to a video then, you move the sliding pointer to a new area of the board and watch/listen to something new!

My wife and I stopped at this museum one day when were at the lower end of Wildwood across from the convention center. The museum is small but it had a lot of old 50's items and some old neon signs from businesses that are no longer in business. The gentleman was very nice and friendly and he was very... More

We enjoy the atmosphere at the DooWop each year and the wait staff very friendly! Its great to eat at a place that doesn't just have typical pizza and hoagie stuff.

I recently visited the Doo Wop museum with my wife this past weekend. It brought back many memories when I used to go to the Wildwoods as a kid. Motels that are long gone, restaurants, etc. But they still have the Neon signs in the museum! Pretty Cool. We also went on the Doo Wop Tour on Thursday night. It... More

Interesting and informative about an era gone by....but still alive and well in Wildwood! Small museum of '50s memorabilia to bring about nostalgia..along with a bus tour of lighted neon motels and stories unique to each one...worth the small ticket price...only wish the bus went a little slower so picture taking could be made easier.

Did the tour last night. Took a tour of the Wildwoods on a school bus. The guide was fun and informative learned a few things we didn't know about some of the hotels and the area!

we went to the museum several times and it was not open. Everybody we ask about even the police on the boardwalk were unaware of anything about the museum.

It's worth going to this cute little museum. It's full of memorabilia from the 50's and 60's. My grandkids had never seen a rotary dial phone or record player. It's like going down memory lane for the 50 and older crowd. A must see in Wildwood.
