We went to see the Wright Flyer - which gave goosebumps, really - so awesome that the real thing has been so well preserved. We got there late, so didn't have time to see other exhibits in the park..... more

Perfect for the family! Whether it’s the history, the natural scenery, or the interactive areas the Carillon Historical Park is a landmark that will be enjoyed by the whole family. Truthfully, you could spend all day here or split it up amongst a few days. The museum has both indoor and outdoor area to be entertained which is great depending on the time of year. We look forward to coming back through the seasons! We really enjoyed the food at the Brewery as well!
This place is a nice area to go for a walk and to experience the history of the railroad and The Wright brothers. $12 for adults and 3 and under are free admission. Train rides are available base on a schedule. Mini train rides for children and grownups as well that last about 5-8 minutes long. The park itself is nice and well keep. Restaurant on sight and clean restrooms are available along with wheelchair parking. Come here for a nice outing with family. It was a great experience and something to do that can take up most of your day and get fresh air as well as learning something new 🙂.
