  • The tank in the front of the Wright Museum suggests it is all about the war in Europe or the Pacific. Not so. It is much more about the home front. There are displays of what life was like in several ...  more »
  • Even though we have visited WWII sites (Pearl Harbor), Normandy beaches, etc., this was a very good museum. We enjoyed the time tunnel, the equipment and would have loved more time there.  more »

  • Liked the explanation of activities during the time from 1939 to 1945. Also, like the various vehicles that are typically not seen other places. Excellent information resources there as well.
  • Well put together. Interesting all the way thru. Vehicle room smelled like oil badly. Ventilation needed.
  • Excellent! Beyond my expectations! Highly recommend it to anyone that likes history.
  • This is a great place to go to expand your knowledge regarding life during the World War II time. My husband is really into this type of stuff more than I am, but really anyone would learn from this museum. We have all heard of the victory gardens, and how the people at home were kept involved in "doing their part", but there is nothing like seeing all these posters and exhibits to really bring it home. It is definitely worth a visit.
  • I've been 3 times and discovered different tidbits in the main exhibits each time. Add the special gallery space and it's definitely worth the trip. (I forget what was there the first time, the second time was the Rockwell covers, and the third trip had the Pearl Harbor photos (very moving).) My wife and I joined as members to help support the museum.
