“A trip through our childhood into adulthood in Wildwood”

George F. Boyer Historical Museum
Ranked #8 of 38 things to do in Wildwood
Attraction details
Reviewed June 21, 2014

The museum has photos of the boardwalk and all the bars and nightclubs throughout the years. My husband and i met 43 years ago in Wildwood and spending a half day at the museum we re-lived our childhood into our teen years. From all the amusements on piers no longer there or all the musical groups we saw at the clubs during the 60's and 70's we had a fantastic time.

Spent a rainy day exploring the memorabilia of Wildwood. We really enjoyed the old boardwalk photos as well as the photos of Motels long gone.

If you spent any time in Wildwood back in the 1960's, you'll love this museum. There are pictures of all the wonderful old motels that have been torn down. Also mementos from the old ride piers on the boardwalk and restaurants that are now gone. It's a great place to relive childhood memories!

You can get lost in this place just browsing and going back in time. Love looking at old photos of how Wildwood looked years ago.

This is a wonderful museum dedicated to the history of Wildwood.

There are dozens of large binders of photos broken down into categories - the boardwalk, demolished motels, fires, amusement piers, etc. They're also broken down by year - the 30's, 40's etc. You can literally spend hours looking through Wildwood's history. There are two long tables and several chairs for your viewing enjoyment.

Another room has several pieces of memorabilia from the past. Remember the old Zaberer's clock from the parking lot? It's here, along with one of their menus, book of matches and other items. I still miss that restaurant to this day!!

The museum is self guided. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. Admission is free but they do take donations.

If you love the 'old' Wildwood, don't pass up a chance to visit this museum. It will bring back wonderful memories!!
