You could spend hours at each exhibit. The speakers at each exhibit were actual participants in the military battles that took place during the wars.

No wonder our grandfathers and great grandfathers are called the Greatest Generation. This museum presents a picture of America United to keep freedom alive. Tracing the history of the war years creates a context that enables us to feel the benefit of working together for an unselfish cause. Great hardware. Delightful Rockwell posters. It's a deeply inspiring history lesson.

This is a fantastic Museum especially for a small town. Has numerous interesting exhibits including a large selection of functioning World War II military vehicles. Most of these vehicles are even used every year in the Fourth of July parade. A must-see for Wolfeboro visitors.

Thought we would slip in for an hour but ended up being the last ones there. Quite impressed with the two operable tanks (Sherman and Sheridan) as well as the memorabilia, much of which were still around when we were kids. Our parents lived in the WWII years.

This museum is a perfect side trip with your family on a cloudy day in the beautiful NH Lakes region. It is good enough to be a destination on its own and simply perfect for an afternoon when the lakes don't beckon. Beautifully arranged, the Time Tunnel will take you through each year of the war, allowing you to visit... More

This museum has exhibits on both the home front and battle front during WWII. The home front exhibits brought back memories of visiting my grandmothers home as a child. The WWII vehicles exhibit is impressive. Well worth a visit when in the Wolfboro NH area.

I just came from the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro and I am so happy to have finally visited this wonderful place which is just down the road from where I live! This is a museum which focuses on the American Experience from 1939 to 1945, how the nation pulled together in the name of Victory during WWII, and the sacrifices... More
