This museum is free to the public. It is a fun place to go. Their is much to see. They have lots of memorablea from the early days of Wildwood. You can spend a lot of time looking through everything. It will bring back memories from years ago. Great place to spend a rainy afternoon.

One lady looked up properties my aunt used to own and printed pictures of the property for me. Upon visiting one of the properties, I met a cousin. We spent the afternoon together just sight seeing around Wildwood and talked... More

This museum contains mementos and photos depicting the history of the Wildwoods. The museum is small but there's *so* much there that you can be there for hours and not see everything. In addition to traditional museum displays, they have over 100 binders organized by topic that have been scanned into a computer. For example, I'm a railfan and they... More

Folks - the museum is incredibly dense with items, well presented and organized. It's an archive as well as a museum if you ask me as there is extensive documentation for every phase of Wildwood's history. Free with free parking. No excuse not to go and to enjoy.

I recently purchased a Condo in Wildwood and was informed that my building happens to be one of the showcased structures at this museum. Looking through the computerized photo data base, I found it! It was from the 1950's. I was hoping for an earlier photo but, it was just as interesting. The structure was different. In fact I thought... More

I stopped to drop off drinking glasses from a restaurant from along time ago in Wildwood. The woman who helped me was very nice. It was after hours so did not want to bother anyone to look around. But what I saw this place was great and can't wait to go back. If you been going to Wildwood since a... More

Large parking area out front. The building is clean and well maintained. Checked out a wholesale clothing sale and the Harlem Globetrotters. The good thing is there really isn't a bad seat due to being on the smaller size.

The museum was awesome. They had some things in there from WWI and WWII, the history of Wildwood and my favorite thing to see was the Dracula Castle memorabilia. This brought back a lot of memories.

Very interesting history of Wildwood. Everything from the old motels, to old phones, postcards, and typewriters. If you are looking for the history of Wildwood, this is a must. They sell a hardcover book about Wildwood for $20 that other places sell for $35. Staff was very friendly. Close to motels and food.
