WOLFEBORO, N.H. (AP) - The U.S. Senate has passed a resolution from Sens. Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen commemorating the 20th anniversary of a New Hampshire museum recognized for its World War II -era memorabilia.

The Wright Museum of World War II History is in Wolfeboro.

The museum was founded by David Wright and opened in 1994. It is believed to be the only museum in the United States that exclusively focuses on the contributions and legacy of World War II-era Americans.

“For over two decades, the Wright Museum has dedicated itself to preserving a significant period in our nation’s history and sharing the story of America’s Greatest Generation, and we’re pleased the Senate has officially recognized the museum’s contributions,” the senators said in a statement.

“New Hampshire is fortunate to be home to this unique educational institution, and we know that the Wright Museum will continue to educate and inspire visitors from across the country and around the globe for generations to come,” they added.
