We are WWII buffs, so this museum was right down our alley. Loved it! Everything was neat, orderly, and well- maintained. The staff was well-informed and clearly enjoyed the job. Make sure you allow enough time to really see it. If you are a browser and like to read and see in detail the exhibits, give yourself at least three... More

It was a great way to see some of history. They did a great job, the way they set things up. It was very enjoyable to see the history of the war, and what went on at home. The memorabilia was set up perfectly. I would recommend this to anyone interested in World War II. The photographs were worth the... More

If you are a history buff you will enjoy this place. The exhibit starts with what was going on in the US home front during the war with a lot articles from the era. It follows the war from 1939 to 1945. Then there is an exhibition hall with WW2 vehicles including a Pershing tank and other vehicles. This is... More

We went today (family day) and got to take a ride in one of the 1942 vehicles. We had a lot of fun and the price was reasonable. The actual museum has a great set up. Well worth it. Even if you aren't a history buff, you will still find it worth your while.

This museum is full of memorabilia. It is worthwhile visiting. In fact, during the recent July 4th parade, there were tanks, army vehicles, etc being driven from the museum.

This museum is definitely worth seeing. It has a super interesting collection of WWII military and 1940s Americana. It is professionally presented and the staff know what they are talking about. They are also friendly and helpful to explain things about the museum and events like the military vehicle ride on 12 July. It is a nice place to get... More

Attended one of the Tuesday night lecture events - the Rockin' Daddios, a four-man acapella group that sang doo-wop and songs from the 40s. They were excellent. The Museum itself is a great experience with well done regular and special exhibits, knowledgable docents and a nice selection of items in the gift shop. Highly recommended.

The Wright Museum is quite a special place. WWII historic artifacts are everywhere. Military vehicles, weapons and uniforms stand still in time for visitors to get a glimpse of what our men and women dealt with during the war. It's amazing that such a small town like Wolfeboro would have such incredible artifacts. The experience at this museum is one... More
