Wildwood is trying very hard to maintain it's mid century feel and the preservation museum has many items on display including old neon, period furnishings and story boards. Take a half an hour and check it out. They also arranged a private bus tour for our group driving by many examples of mid century architecture and classic neon. Great time.

Sounds strange, but this is a cool place to check out when you visit Wildwood. The old neon signs and museum artifacts of the Doo Woo era are cool to see. The building itself is housed in an old restaurant that our family visited for many years before closing down and not because the food wasn't good. And its convenient... More

We toured the museum and it was like a trip back in time. Loved the retro furniture, lamps, neon lights and more.

Going to the Wildwoods since the 60's. Enjoyed seeing the preservation of the signs of the hotels that are no longer there. Enjoyed the Doo Wop tour.

The museum is small but very interesting. It has signs from the old motels that were in Wildwood and furniture from the 50's. It is a real neat place to visit if you are from this era. Old 45's, bicycles, music is playing all the time. It is free. They are still in the process of receiving more memorabilia from... More

Enjoyed the large amount of memorabilia, attractively displayed. But they need to add some merchandise for souvenir seekers to purchase and a working soda shop for visitors to purchase an ice cream float.

Fun, little museum! Has old furniture and signs from the 60's. Brings back lots of memories! Loaded with the history of Wildwood in a movable time-line. Very interesting!

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!
