Tuesday Feature: Jersey Shore Spot of the Week!

Contrary to popular belief, the Jersey Shore doesn't slow down for winter! There are still lots of things to do, lots of places to see, and lots of fun to be had! We're sharing another Jersey Shore Spot of the Week for you to fill those fall nights!

Atlantic City Historical Museum

  Garden Pier, 701 Boardwalk, Atlantic City
10 A.M. to 4 P.M.
Free to the Public

Permanent Exhibit--Atlantic City, Playground of the Nation: Displays artifacts, costumes, posters, photographs, songsheets, postcards, souvenirs, and an array of Miss America memorabilia. Mr. Peanut greets visitors to this unique museum and points the way to a miniature Boardwalk and beach area featuring a fascinating collection of original sand art. After 100 years, Heinz pickle pins are still given out at the museum.
The entertaining historical video, "Boardwalk Ballyhoo: The Magic of Atlantic City," is shown continuously throughout the day. The documentary includes spectacular footage of the Miss America Pageant, archival Thomas Edison beach shots, and the famous high-diving horse. The video traces the resort's famous history from it's early beginnings to the casino city of today, and includes a memorable soundtrack.
Al Gold Photography Gallery: A rotating photography exhibit that is dedicated to presenting various culturally inclusive exhibitions depicting Atlantic City history. Al Gold was born in Philadelphia in 1902 and came to Atlantic City for his health. His foray in photography began in 1921 when he photographed the first Miss America pageant. His photographic skills became widely known and in 1939 he was appointed Atlantic City's first Chief Photographer, a post he held until his death in 1964. "Goldie," as he was affectionately known by all was one of the most popular news photographers in the East.
