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! This was... More

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

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
