This museum is our favorite in the area! Planes, trains, and automobiles with the perfect amount of walking for the kiddos. There's a train to ride on outside a few scheduled days a year, but there's always a carousel in the main building. There could be more interactive activities, but I think they're working on a couple new attractions in the next few years. They're building a new wing with a new cafe based on a historic lunch counter from the Dayton arcade. A wonderful education in the rich entrepreneurship that made Dayton, Ohio what it is.
This is a great historical landmark for Dayton Ohio! I was able to record a video in front of this for my video channel and then I took my son here a few weeks later! There's so many great elements to this park we hope to go back really soon!!
