of the home front during the years US was in WWII, Thanks to visiting relatives who wanted to go, I went along. Period rooms are fascinating and there is a lot to see. Wolfeboro has a small population during most of the year--under 7000, so it's unusual for a town this size to have not just one but two museums.... More

If you are a WWII buff, make the stop. Very detailed exhibits and museum layout is smart and user friendly. Spent 2 hours and could have done more. Vehicle restorations are impressive.

I'm never particularly interested in war museums as I'm not that interested in military history. This had a good mix of military history and domestic with quite a it about women back home in America, obviously I know the British history of land girls so I found this really interesting. There was also lots of big military vehicles to keep... More

We stumbled on this museum as we headed up Rt 28 towards Conway NH. The Wright Museum does a good job of depicting WWII from the perspective of life in the USA. We spent an hour in the museum, but could have easily spent longer. However, you are not being short changed if you only have an hour. Worth the... More

My wife and I have lived less than 20 miles away from this venue for 35 years. After driving by a multitude of different times, we decided to finally visit last week. What a beautiful building with an exceptional layout of artifacts and information. We encourage everyone; especially folks who live in the area, to stop and spend some time... More

There is something here for everyone not just weapons and uniforms. The staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The art gallery was excellent with WW2 art work by a very talented Private Charles J Miller who told his story through pictures. The Time Tunnel and Home Front room gives you an insight to the war years in an unique way.... More
