I am glad that there is a group dedicated to preserving the memories of old wildwood. Many Doo Wop motels were lost over the last decade and replaced with sterile condos. Thank you Doo Wop Preservation League.

Doo Wop Experience Tour was great. They don't update website and they offer additional tours so call Chamber of Commerce or look in museum for a person dressed in retro clothing to buy $12 tickets. Usually tours only on Tues/Thurs evenings but at Spring Festival offered at 12, 1, and 2pm. Charlie was knowledgeable and told history of each motel... More

The Doo Wop Preservation League Museum is housed with a snack shop in a beautiful historic 50's diner. It's a small display space, but there is enough room to store some of the more fantastic neon signs rescued from now-gone Doo Wop-era businesses in Wildwood, and provide a feel for the music, design, and culture of the era when Wildwood...

We visited The Doo Wop Museum during the summer. I was amazed. I have been lucky enough to have Wildwood as part of my life for over 20 years. Seeing the pictures and pieces of history, preserved brought back so many happy memories for my grown children and myself. Take the time to visit it. If you are a "newbie"... More

The Philadelphia Inquirer had an article about the Doo Wop tour given by the Preservation League in Wildwood N.J. and I was going to be in Ocean City, less than 1/2 hr. away, so I said to my friend, "Why not!" I called and found out that the tour was at 8 pm on Tuesday night, so we drove down... More

We stopped in just before closing and the hostess there was very knowledgable about all the different items on display. VERY cool retro signs from yesteryear, and most of them are working. I found out the museum is open most weekdays by 5pm and all day on weekends. It is a non-profit, so your mileage my vary. BIG ISSUE: The... More

Just stopped for the first time last summer. I enjoyed it. Great vintage door wop motel signage from the old days on display. And the old zabereers sign! Many neat 1950s items! And good history on wildwood!
