The George F. Boyer Historocal Museum is managed by The Wildwood Historical Society, non-profit, tax exempt, not for profit corporation, founded in 1963 and given new life in 1990. Membership is open to any interested person.

The objective of the society is to gather, perserve, and present the history of Wildwood, to the public, in an interesting and informative manner.

The museum has vintage photos, artifacts, and memorabilia, depicting the various ages of Wildwood, from its merger with Holly Beach City, to the present.

One of the goals of the re-organized society is to recapture thos years, brush off the dust, and put them on display for public enlightment.

We have special sections dedicated to the police and fire departments, the beach patrol, boardwalk, history-making residents and to the scholastic and athletic achievements of the city.

We have microfilm of newspapers dating back to 1897, books on the military, entertainment, transportation, old hotels, houses, and of course our famous boardwalk!

The price of admission is a donation. Come and see "The Wildwood Grandma and grandpa knew."

  • No doubt a popular (indoor) on rainy days, "The Boyer" is worth your time even if the weather outside is perfect. More than a half dozen rooms are filled with historic photos (the binders alone...

  • We were recently in Wildwood last week for a few days. We were looking for fun things to do while we were there. On the way into town we saw a sign for the Wildwood History Museum. We have been going to Wildwood for decades and honestly did not know this little gem existed. We were absolutely mystified by the amount of information in this amazing little place! We were treated to such a time warp and were able to relive so many memories! It was amazing to look at the pictures of the glorious history of Wildwood. I am a child of the 1970s and 1980s and it was terrific to see photos of the boardwalk and piers during that time. You could literally spend hours in there. Seeing the sign for Groff's and menus and memorabilia for Zaberer's and The Dolphin Restaurant really brought back nice memories. The really nice bonus for the wonderful place is that it is 100% free!! They do however take donations if you would like to contribute to their continued service to the community. In these uncertain economic times it is really nice that you can go in there with your family, learn a bit about the history of Wildwood and spend quality time together while doing so without the pain of a high priced attraction. We had a great time there and totally enjoyed our visit. I hope that you guys are able to educate visitors there for years to come. Thanks. Jim-
  • A phenomenal repository for any and all visitors young and young at heart. Definitely a worthy destination FREE admission but do donate as the volunteers put 100s of hours in to maintaining & preserving undoubtedly the largest Jersey Shore town archive of its kind.
