Museum – just 3 miles North of Cape May and 1 mile south of Wildwood, this is
a big indoor space that has lots of old aircraft and interesting displays, very
‘hands on’ so the children enjoy it. It is located at the regional
airport, which is also interesting. For more information, click on the
following link: http://www.usnasw.org/Advertise.htm
May Lighthouse – there are a few buildings here, with indoor exhibits, as well
as a nice park area and a nearby beach (
Nature Center of Cape May - there are many things to see inside the main building as well as the educational building. Check their schedule for indoor workshops. On rainy days, the center brings some of the activities indoors. http://www.njaudubon.org/centers/nccm/
Hereford Inlet Lighthouse and Park - in the Anglesea section of North Wildwood (the most-northern part, off exit 6 of the Parkway). This is a lovely outdoor space, as well as indoor lighthouse. Different from the towering lighthouse of Cape May, this one has a more 'short and squatty' appearance but is still functioning and doing a great job! http://www.herefordlighthouse.org/
Wildwood Historical Museum - so you thought that Wildwood was only about Doo-Wop? There is quite a bit of history to the town of Wildwood, including its roots with the names like 'Five Mile Beach' and 'Holly Beach'. Learn more about all of that in this interesting museum http://www.the-wildwoods.com/history/museum.html
