Love our first visit here. Bring quarters to park on street. Plan to spend an hour or 2. A nice movie informs about Wildwood in the early days. Delightful staff. So many memories in one place. Loved it!

This museum takes you through the decades of Wildwood NJ...Where the 1950's and the 21st Century are in perfect harmony. From the FIRST ROCK & ROLL song to the giants of the entertainment industry...The history is all here!

Really enjoyable visit with teens and younger kids. Nice movie about the history of Wildwood as a seashore resort, including lots I didn't know about its Doo-Wop past. We did the scavenger hunt and learned a lot from the nice woman at the front desk....More
