  • A great experience for the child of a WWII Veteran. I was totally awe-struck by the Wright Museum!! Displays change thru the year, as the entire collection cannot be displayed in the space available. ...  read more »
  • We had a group of 8 ages 5-65 & everyone walked away with something. Sheldon, a Vietnam veteran, wecomed us with a brief orientation and a personal recount of his childhood memories during WWII. A short film sets the tone, and the displays flow seamlessly right though. Great stop.
  • A visit to the museum takes you back to before and during the war. There is plenty of cool war stuff there, including several tanks, but the memorabilia of the times is what puts you there. The time machine shows what was popular in each year, there are examples of what a living room, kitchen and dentist office looked like, along with the war propoganda. Worth a visit!
  • Incredible restored rolling stock collection, and a unique museum in that it provides a good deal of focus on the Homefront and everyday life in the period.
  • Fantastic collection of 1940's American life.
  • Reason for my star is below Just one question........Why do you charge veterans admission? Not sure I like that one at all.,
