Wright Museum of World War II
77 Center Street, Wolfeboro, NH 03894 - United States
Please bring the printed Museum Day ticket for admission on September 21st!
The year 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the Wright Museum. For over two decades the Wright Museum has educated, entertained and inspired visitors with the story of the WWII-era Americans often called “the greatest generation”. Unique among traditional WWII museums, however, the Wright’s nationally-recognized collection contains 14,000 objects and memorabilia from both the home front and the battle field.
Enjoy our authentic and engaging displays that include a “Time Tunnel” where you stroll through the America home front during the years 1939-1945 ; and a gallery filled with fully-operational military vehicles including a plane, motorcycles and a Pershing tank that survived the battle at Remagen.
Experience the past, and be inspired by a nation united.
The Last Good War: The Faces and Voices of World War II
What started out as a high school project became a post-high school mission for Thomas Sanders: photograph as many World War II veterans as he could and tell their stories. Sanders succeeded, traveling throughout the country recording in pictures and words experiences from those who fought the “last good war.” This exhibit not only preserves memories of that war for future generations but shows the sacrifices people made to preserve our freedom and give us the world we live in today.
This exhibit made possible by the generous support from The Weirs Times.
