Wright Museum to offer free admission to credit union members

International Credit Union Day is October 15, an occasion that will be celebrated at the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro with free admission for members of any credit union in New Hampshire on Saturday, October 17.

Made possible through a partnership with Service Credit Union, free admission for credit union members may also be extended for one guest.

“This is the second of two free admission days for credit union members, and we hope people take us up on this special offer,” said Mike Culver, executive director. “We appreciate Service Credit Union’s ongoing support to make this possible.”

Representative of both the home front and battle field, The Wright currently features the exhibit, Memories of WWII: Photographs from the Associated Press Archives, which consists of 120 black and white photographs. Some of the images include the German Army marching into Paris under the Champs-Elysees, the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima, MacArthur’s return to the Philippines and the liberation of German concentration camps.

“It’s an amazing exhibit that takes people through some of the war’s most memorable scenes,” said Culver.

The Wright is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and on Sunday from noon to 4 pm.
