I went there by myself one afternoon while everyone else was doing there own thing. The people were extremely friendly. Gave me tips on what else to do. The displays were wonderful, I felt like I took a time machine back to the doo-wop era!

This place has a ton of different pancake fillings for breakfast, and all kinds of wonderful ice cream flavors all day.

This museum was so much fun - and FREE! The care that they have taken to preserve the history of Wildwood's Doo-Wop is fantastic!

We browsed around the Doo Wop shop and enjoyed seeing all the memorabilia they have there. Also, there was an author there signing her books about Nostalgic Wildwood which we purchased and had her sign. It was 50's weekend so it was very busy!
