Featuring more than 15 museums from southern and central New Hampshire, the NH Heritage Museum Trail features several special ceremonies and events in honor of Veteran’s Day on Thursday, November 11.
Concluding its 2021 season on October 31, the Wright Museum will reopen for Veteran’s Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and host a special ceremony to honor veterans from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m..
“It is important we honor the contributions and sacrifices made by all veterans,” said Wright Museum Executive Director Mike Culver, who said the ceremony is organized by Wolfeboro’s American Legion Post 18. “Nearly a third of our annual visitors are veterans, so this is an important day for them and us.”
Admission to the ceremony is included with regular admission. For more information, visit wrightmuseum.org.
