The service food and shakes are great at this place. It is located on the boardwalk and the prices are reasonable for the location.

It is really good to find a place where the history of this town comes to life. The scaled down Vietnam Memorial is appreciated. Don't miss!

My three daughters, ages 12, 15 and 19, and I visit Wildwood each year in July. This past July, we took the tour offered at the Doo Wop Museum. We had a very enjoyable time. The bus was comfortable and we purchased snacks while touring the small museum while awaiting our tour to begin. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and... More

This museum is small but incredibly cool. They have a nice selection of old local neon signs. The collection of mid-mod lamps which I aDORE is the best I ever saw. If you like the atomic era in all it's outrageous glory, do not miss this place !

We visited the Doo Wop Museaum and were very disappointed in the visit. We are both fans of the Doo Wop era and found more delight in drving around taking photos of the remaining Doo Woop motels and signs.

I started going to Wildwood as a teenager and enjoyed seeing all the reminders of the past. The history of Wildwood is memorialized for future generations.

I'm a fan of the Doo-Wop era till the cows come home, and was looking forward to visiting the museum and taking the bus tour since first visiting Wildwood back in May. The museum is very cute--however 10-20 minutes is long enough for a self-guided tour. Lots of great furniture pieces and decor, and the volunteer that was there was... More

This free museum is definitely worth a visit. It captures a period of time many of us lived through but did not realize then how wonderful it really was. Plenty of items on display to reminisce over relating to the history of Wildwood and past times. But even first time Wildwood visitors would appreciate seeing this collection. There is a... More

Having traveled and stayed in Wildwood Crest for most of my life this Museum brings back the DOO Wop signs and symbols that I remember as a child. Seeing the Lollipop, Hialeah Resort Motel and Swan signs made me realize what a special time and place the Shore is to so many people. A BIG thanks to the Morey family... More
