The Doo Wop Preservation League Museum, Wildwood

3.7
#7 of 9 in Museums in Cape May County
The Doo Wop Preservation League was formed in 1997 by a group of Wildwood business owners, town devotees, architecture buffs and kitsch lovers with a serious commitment to the Wildwoods' past and future. The league's efforts come in response to studies conducted by the University of Pennsylvania, Yale University and Kent State University, validating and crediting the Wildwoods with having the largest collection of mid-century commercial (or "Doo Wop") architecture in the nation, taking the form of 1950s-era resort motels, diners, restaurants and vintage neon signs.
