I found libwmf-bin, which is packaged in Ubuntu
(http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/libwmf-bin). It includes a library,
as well as a simple front-end, wmf2svg.
You can use it like:
wmf2svg file.wmf -o file.svg
or if you prefer, you can open WMF files in Inkscape.
If you just want to convert it directly to a bitmap format like PNG, try:
convert file.wmf file.png
to use the ImageMagick convert program.
