“Lakes Region Branch of NH Heritage Museum Trail gearing up for busy July

In Wolfeboro in the Lakes Region branch of the NH Heritage Museum Trail, July will feature many fun opportunities for all ages.

At New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM), Executive Director Martha Cummings said the New England Vintage Boat and Car Auction on Saturday, July 13 is one of their biggest events.

“It’s a lot of fun to be able to see boats, cars, kayaks and unique collectibles you won’t find anywhere else,” she said. “It’s a great day for everyone.”

On Sunday, July 14 at Family Day, Wright Museum will feature WWII re-enactors, children story-telling, rides in military vehicles, face-painting and more.

“This is a fun day that gets the entire town involved,” said museum Executive Director Mike Culver. “There is so much to see and do at The Wright and throughout town this special day.

At The Libby Museum of Natural History on Saturday, July 27, visitors (teens and adults) can enjoy a unique combination of art and nature at Wildlife Sketching Class, taught by artist Stephanie Ayers.

“This class is a fun community event where you can learn to draw real animals like a polar bear, moose, or fisher cat from the taxidermy collection housed at the museum,” said Executive Director Alana Albee. “Right now, we have a 14-year old and an 84 year-old signed up. This is a nice way to get the whole family together to try something different.”

According to Trail President Jeff Barraclough, the entire Trail is “full of fun, family friendly activities.”

“My hope is that people look to us for not just history, but a fun time for the whole family this summer,” he said. “Celebrating our ‘heritage’ can be fun.”
