In addition to serving as a knowledgeable guardian of our cultural heritage, the 20,000 sq. ft. Wright Museum offers a variety of educational programs, conducts school tours for students of all ages, and hosts special traveling exhibits relating to the war years. Recent special exhibitions have included D-Day photographs; an Anne Frank show; WW II Quilts; an Associated Press Photography show that contained images from 1934-45; and a Wright Museum-curated show of art work created by a WW II NH soldier/artist.

For two decades, the 501(c)(3) Wright Museum has educated, entertained and inspired nearly 300,000 national and international visitors. Today, more than ever, this one-of-kind Museum remains dedicated to David Wright’s vision of educating future generations about the contributions made by WW II-era Americans and honoring their lasting legacy.
