This is the second time I have visited the Boyer Historical Museum and I find that it is interesting to visit and I learn something new when I come here. It has the history of the town since its founding and it has a little bit of everything on the town. It covers the schools, the police and fire department, the fires that the town has been experienced and the whole resort hotels and motels and amusements. Don't miss their display of the hold amusement piers and rides that used to be there. It can be a little overwhelming to see the this museum as there is a lot to read and look at so it may take a few trips. Don't miss the restaurant section with the old menus, plate ware and signs. It really shows how the resort has changed over the years but in some cases has not changed a bit. Make a small donation to keep this museum going as the staff works really hard to keep the place open. It has limited hours and call ahead if you are going to visit.

If you have any interest in the Wildwoods, this is a great place to stop. Highly organized, with a helpful friendly staff. It can get a little crowded on rainy days. Lots of items that will invoke nostalgia if you vacationed in Wildwood as a kid.

I visited Wildwood Beach for a convention recently and had read about the Wildwood Historical Society and took an early morning trip to visit the museum. It really is an interesting little museum. The Boyer Historical Museum is a treasure trove of information on the history of the Wildwood Beaches, not just the amusements but on the schools, the police and fire departments and the whole history on the creation of the beach community. There are all sorts of artifacts including old amusement items, old pictures, hotel and restaurant items and all sorts of records on all aspects of the three towns and their history. Don't miss the videos on the old parks and the way the town grew. Take time to walk each of the rooms and look at all the old pictures and books that line all the walls. It can be a bit jumbled and a little overwhelming as there is so much to see but it is a nice way to spend the morning especially if it is raining. The cost is free. Be aware though that they are open only from 9-2pm.

Lots of detail and very dedicated volunteers who are very knowledgeable about the town. Especially great if you have a person, hobby or location you want to find out more about. The DVD running at the time of my visit only went back to the early 1940's but there are displays that go further back. This is a great rainy day activity. Bring quarters to feed the meters for street parking.
