Ever wondered what it was like to live in the United States from 1939-1945?. Ever wondered how the American people pulled together to save the world from tyranny? Ever wondered what it was like to be in the Army, Navy, Marines either as a man or woman? You need to visit Wright Museum... This is a national treasure.

An innovative museum which has a great exhibit on life in the US during the war. Fascinating time tunnel which shows the cost of living and what was happening in context with fighting. Excellent display and well worth a few hours.

Gives a good over view of World War 2 but not very in-depth about the war it's more for what people did at the time. Could explain things a little better

Small museum with a lot of artifacts. Tells the story of what it was like to be in the states during 1939 to 1945. Knowledgeable employees who are more than happy to share a tale or two. If you are in the area and have a couple of hours you should stop by.

The Wright Museum of World War II in Wolfeboro is a little gem of a place. I didn't expect to find such a wonderful comprehensive collection of exhibits and memorabilia. It included some great military vehicles alongside a well constructed story of the 'home front' The volunteers who run this museum are very knowledgeable and certainly know how to relate... More

Heard about this place and always meant to stop in but never seemed to find the time. We finally made it there and it is a place you have got to make time for. It focuses on life in America during WWII and has some great displays along with some working tanks and various other military vehicles. It covers multiple... More

If you are in the area plan to spend 2 hours here. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Displays are well-organized and appeal to military and non-military history buffs. The tanks and motorcycles are in incredible condition.

This was an absolutely wonderful trip into one of the most profound times in our history. All the displays were very well thought out. Not to big and not to small. It was just right. You would be foolish not to spend a few hours of your day taking in what The Wright Museum has to offer. Five star experience.

This is by far the best attraction in the area. A new perspective on WWII from the home front. Our 11 year old loved every single part of the museum. A lot of things to see! It is beautifully organized and the displays were fantastic. The staff was also fantastic and helpful. We wished we have more time there!! Don't... More
