“Make this visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2012

The curator was friendly, knowledgeable and funny! The binders in the reading room are amazing--I could've spent all day just looking at the Hunt's Pier Binder. If you want to dig just a little deeper into the history of this magical place, you've got to hit the George F. Boyer Museum.

“Amazing hidden treasure in Wildwood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

I can spend HOURS in this place looking at what WW used to be and what it is now. Staff is very nice. Unique artifacts, lots of pictures and stories. I try to visit every time I come down.

“very thorough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2012

Any resident of The Wildwoods should visit this museum whenever they can. There is SO much history of the area in this small building plus it's free (but you can make a donation).

“One of the best museums you'll find anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

If you have any interest in history, spend a few hours here. If you're a fan of the Wildwoods, you'll have a hard time pulling yourself away from it. Many museums are small rooms with a few items, but the Boyer is many rooms filled with photos and other assorted memorabilia, not to mention what seems like a few hundred photo albums, all neatly organized so you can easily find what you're looking for. Not to be missed.
