This is a fantastic Museum especially for a small town. Has numerous interesting exhibits including a large selection of functioning World War II military vehicles. Most of these vehicles are even used every year in the Fourth of July parade. A must-see for Wolfeboro visitors.

This museum has exhibits on both the home front and battle front during WWII. The home front exhibits brought back memories of visiting my grandmothers home as a child. The WWII vehicles exhibit is impressive. Well worth a visit when in the Wolfboro NH area.

The other comments are spot on. A visit here gives you a feeling of what it was like to live in America during the war. The military hardware exhibits are well balanced with domestic examples.
