During Laconia Bike Week 2013, we had a special veterans appreciation day on Tuesday. All veterans who came to the museum were offered half price admission. Several insisted on paying the full admission while stating how much they appreciated the gesture. We were treated to something very special as we watched veterans from all era’s talk and reminisce. Seeing Vietnam and Korean era veterans sitting in various locations through the museum with the young men and women who have just come home was very heartwarming. I thought as the day ended that no one understands a veteran like another veteran. It was a day to remember. Going forward, every Tuesday of Laconia Bike week in June will be Veterans Appreciation Day. Thanks for your service and dedication!
During the rest of the museum season, our military discount for all veterans will be the same as the senior discount.
We have a special area in the lower level of the museum dedicated to our military. There is a WW 11 motorcycle, a jeep and a wall of pictures and military artifacts. If you wish to have your picture taken on the motorcycle, you may do so as long as a museum staff member is with you.
