Historical museum

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

This museum was made for those enamored with World War II - tanks, uniforms, jeeps. The whole nine yards. Hard to believe it has endured and flourished in little Wolfeboro.

Great World War II museum for history buffs. It is very well-maintained and has a lot of historical information pertaining to World War II. The exhibit of the quilts from the war era was particularly impressive. The ladies, demonstrating their quilting techniques, was very informative. A most see place for those that are interested in American history.

This is a must see if you are in Wolfeboro!!! The artifacts are terrific ….all in excellent condition. Alice (the Sherman tank) was just great. Walked upstairs to watch the ladies making quilts and were greeted with smiles and as much information about the quilting as we wanted.

A beautifully done exhibit of the years of the war. Plus an amazing collection of vehicles from the war. Worth going to! Plan to spend several hours to take it all in.

While war museums are not unique, the Wright offers a large collection of artifacts from the WW2 years, including not only carefully restored military vehicles, clothing, weapons, posters but also showing civilian life on the homefront. There is even a victory garden. In addition to the permanent collection there are various exhibits throughout the year. Currently there is a display... More
