Atlantic City Historical Museum

The Historical Museum presents the culturally diverse exciting history of Atlantic City with vintage photographs, local artifacts and a video presentation.

The permanent exhibition, "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.
