The museum was awesome. They had some things in there from WWI and WWII, the history of Wildwood and my favorite thing to see was the Dracula Castle memorabilia. This brought back a lot of memories.

Very interesting history of Wildwood. Everything from the old motels, to old phones, postcards, and typewriters. If you are looking for the history of Wildwood, this is a must. They sell a hardcover book about Wildwood for $20 that other places sell for $35. Staff was very friendly. Close to motels and food.

Walking distance from the boardwalk. meter parking in area, Many artifacts, photos and albums. Must stop at least once in your life to get a perspective of the past and memories .

After driving around looking for a space to park, we noticed buses in front of the museum. Once inside folks were friendly, knowledgeable, and did not rush you out. If you are a long time visitor or went to wildwood as a kid...you want to go at least once.

Cool little museum. 3 rooms packed with memorabilia, and many, many pictures from the history of Wildwood. This included quite a few binders just packed with pictures and postcards, and all marked. I was easily able to find a few pics of an old motel my family used to stay in when I was kid. Great little stop a couple... More
