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.

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...More
