Free, close to everything. Pretty much one large room with a lot of history and really cool antiques to see. Did I mention it's also free. Go there you'll be glad you did!

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!

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.
