The Doo Wop Museum is a very small museum of old remnants of the hotels and homes that once dotted the shoreline of Wildwood. The museum contains pieces of the resort's past. As the old motels and restaurants close, they give their signs and furniture to the museum to preserve. There are lots of old pieces of decor, motel signs and old sixties and seventies furniture and do dads. You can see the whole place in about a half hour and the volunteers there were playing cards the entire time I was there. It was interesting but unless you like history of a resort and like old advertising, this will not be the museum for you. Go the Boyer Historical Society more interesting displays. Still it is a fun place to visit.

We've been visiting Wildwood for over 20 years and this is the first time we finally made it to this very cool museum. When you walk in, you feel like you've stepped back in time and that is what makes this a very interesting place to visit. They have preserved many items from the past and we enjoyed sharing this experience with our teenage boys.

The part about music was the most interesting. The period furniture was interesting, but can be see in other place.

My son has been wanting to come here for a while, so we drove from Rockland Cty, NY, here, just for the day, just to visit this museum. I did not think that it was worth the drive; but maybe if I were in town, anyway, and it was a rainy day... The Doo Wop Museum is rather small, and much of it houses some memorabilia from that era, including various rooms of a house from that era. The most informative parts, I found, were what the owner had to say, and a sliding technological piece. I would have liked to explore this a little more, but my son--the one for whom I made this trip--was anxious to leave, and was acting up a little (Although 21, he has Special Needs.). We did come back, at night, for the bus tour. That he really enjoyed (He loves bus/trolley rides.). It took us past many of the neon signs of the Wildwoods, and gave a good narrated tour of the area. Combining this with going on the beach and a couple of rides, ended up making it a nice day.
