Oct. 17 - Oct. 31
Wolfeboro, NH—October 6, 2021—Sunday, October 17 through October 31, the Wright Museum will offer free admission to New Hampshire teachers, an opportunity made possible through a partnership with Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB).
“Meredith Village Savings Bank is a wonderful community collaborator and has embraced this initiative,” explained museum Executive Director Mike Culver.
Initially conceived for NH history teachers, the opportunity has expanded to include teachers of any subject area.
“Every aspect of American life between 1939 and 1945 is addressed at the Wright,” said Culver. “Consequently, whatever subject a teacher may cover in their classroom is represented here—art, literature, economics, history, science and more. A teacher in any discipline can find something to bring back to their students.”
Offered on a single day in August and September, Free Admission Days for Teachers will run from Sunday, October 17 through October 31, which coincides with the end of the Museum’s 2021 season. Teachers must show some form of identification at the admission desk.
“We wanted to create as many opportunities as possible for educators, plus one guest, to visit us this season,” added Culver. “We are grateful for the support of Meredith Village Savings Bank, which makes it possible for us to in turn thank our state’s wonderful educators.”
Featuring more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the homefront and battlefield, The Wright works with dozens of schools across the state to deliver educational experiences online and in the classroom.
