Wright Museum of WWII to Participate in Smithsonian Magazine’s Museum Day

On Saturday, September 21, Wright Museum of WWII in Wolfeboro will offer free admission to visitors as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s 2019 Museum Day. 

Museum Day is an annual yearly celebration hosted by Smithsonian Magazine in which participating museums across the country provide free entry to anyone with a Museum Day ticket.

“We are excited to join hundreds of other museums across the country to celebrate the importance of history,” said Museum Executive Director Mike Culver. 

One of the many museums included in the event is Wright Museum’s neighboring museum, New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM) also located in Wolfeboro. 

“We are so glad that NHBM is also a part of this great event,” Culver said. “It will give people in the Lakes Region double the opportunity to experience history.”

Registration for Museum Day tickets are available on Smithsonian’s Museum Day website. Wright Museum will only be accepting paper tickets. Each ticket provides free general admission on Saturday, September 21, for two people. 

The Wright Museum has long served the community as the region’s leading resource for educators and learners of all ages on World War II. It features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the homefront and battlefield.
