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!

I go here every year, when I come up from Florida, all the history of Wildwood is here, in fact my Dad died in Wildwood in 68 and we bought a brick for him on the sidewalk

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!
