This museum is Definetly worth a visit. The exhibits are informative and engaging. I really enjoyed looking at and reading the history of the modes of transportation and the military vehicles. At the time of our visit the museum had 60+ photos from the D-Day invasion, some never seen before. They were very emotional to view and read the stories... More

The Wright Museum of World War II History is an excellent place to see the 40's in context. From the moment you see the Sherman tank emerging from the brick wall in front to the soda fountain display to the photos of D-Day to uniforms, recruitment posters, and other artifacts, this museum has it all. Great outing for the whole... More

This is a place that we have driven by multiple times and always wanted to stop in but we were always on the way to or from other things at the time, but when we finally did, it was great! It is a walk through museum of World War 2, the war itself but also about the home front as... More

I was amazed by how engaged our group of teenagers was by the displays, films, and stories about the WWII era they found at the Wright Museum. I mean, teenagers are a hard-to-please crowd, and all eight of them left the museum having learned something interesting, and having enjoyed their time, despite it being a beautiful day outside--perfect for a...

This museum is definately a two thumbs up must see! Anyone in the "Baby Boomer" generation will get an instant appreciation of what our parents that were part of the "Greatest Generation" lived thru. What a great mix of military and home front displays. During WWII My dad drove the Stuart, Sherman and Pershing tanks similar to those that were... More

Wonderful and fun WWII Museum. Clean, well kept and organized, very informative. Brought my 95 yr old Dad here as he is a WWII vet. People shook his hand, thanked him and was offered a wheel chair if he was tired of walking. Wonderful experience!

When seeing the outside of this great museum you would think it's just about the military, but you'd be wrong. This museum is about life during WW2, what people were doing and using, and what homes and businesses looked like during the war. You go through each year of the war and experience what they experienced during those years. I... More

We recently visited this museum, and thought it was great. I loved how it wasn't just war items for show. A lot of it was how the US was during WWII. What the regular folk did while it was going on. They had some cool tanks, etc also. We spent about hour and half in here. Very fascinating!
