This is a very nice museum. Worth the price (which is a small amount) and worth the drive. I have taken my children, who were ages 10 and 8, as well as my now husband, who is a veteran, and they have all enjoyed this museum very much and have learned so much! We will be back time and time... More

We have been returning to this Museum every other year since it first opened. We have seen it grow from a one room display area to a first class "look out Smithsonian" Museum and educational center. You are greeted by an excellent volunteer at the front desk then there is an introduction film, the original display room that grows each... More

Saw on WMUR NH chronicle. Youngest son is fanatical about WW2 so we decided to take him. This place was well worth the visit, fairly priced admission and the displays of the tanks were fantastic. Great photo display taken by photographers during the war, really leaves you speachless...definatley a must see

Great artifacts from WWII. Exhibits are always changing, so you need to go every year or two to see what is new or go to the special exhibits throughout the year.

Came in on a whim after driving by the museum for years. Kids had a blast looking at all of the artifacts and vehicles. Highly recommend!

This museum has way more to offer than one would expect driving by on route 28. Inside there is a legitimate museum that presents a whole lot about the WW2 period of 39-45. The exhibits were well conceived and presented. The military hardware was excellent and there was a local flavor to lots of the displays. We had driven by... More

They have a great collection of World War II memorabilia. I thought the "Time Tunnel" was particularly impressive. The museum is well woth a visit and compares well with its counterparts in Washington D.C.

I can't believe all these years I have never gone here! This is a fantastic museum! Allow yourself a few hours to really soak it all in. The year by year exhibit of the war years is interesting and nostalgic. And the many planes and tanks make up quite a collection.

This is one of the best museums of it's kind that we have ever seen. A real hidden gem! If you are spending time in Wolfeboro, or have a rainy day to kill, this is the place!
