New Signage for Doo Wop Experience Museum
The Doo Wop Preservation League has added several new features this
year including enhancements to the I-Wall, some new mid-century
furnishings, and new photos of the
Wildwoods famous neon signs that
remain unique on the Jersey shore.
Now, new signage has been added to the
entrance to inform visitors to the
convention center, the Viet Nam
Memorial Wall, and the many exciting
Fox Park events that the Experience that
the Experience is a great place to visit.
The Doo Wop Heritage museum tells
the story of the motels and other buildings,
the resort’s role as the birthplace of Rock
and Roll, and vacation memories that the
Wildwoods By-the-Sea preserve for
generations of Americans. The new sign
makes this more obvious to visitors. It is another much appreciated
contribution by the community. The sign was designed and installed
when the League learned that many visitors had no idea of the range of
attractions offered at the Heritage.
Now, thanks to the new sign, the Doo Wop Experience museum is
being visited by hundreds more visitors who attend the weekly concerts
and events in Fox Park and visit the Viet Nam Memorial Wall. This year,
the Doo Wop Experience hosted more than 10,000 visitors from all over
the United States and Europe as more people learn about the resort’s
unique architecture, lifestyle and place in history.
The Experience and the publicity generated by Doo Wop are one of
the main reasons that the Wildwoods By-the-Sea were selected as a top
heritage destination in the United states by many authoritative groups
and publications including AOL, New Jersey Historic Society, and Forbes.
It has been truly a great year for national publicity for the resort that will
generate visitors from new markets in future years and, as long as the
business community participates and builds on the theme, the best is yet
And, the Experience continues to grow thanks to the support and
donations by the community. Thanks to that support, the Preservation
League is formalizing plans for additional signs in the neon sign garden,
and a computerized photo album that will hold thousands of photos and
increase the linkage between the resort and its visitors who return year
