  • Great place with lots of historical information and collection of important unique things used for flight discovery. There are ranger guided tours too, for getting more information and they provide details of history and the things preserved over there. This place commemorates three important people Wilbur Wright, Orville Wright, and poet Paul Laurence Dunbar. There's a souvenir shop too. We visited here three years ago in summer.
  • While in Dayton checking out the Museum of the US Air Force, decided to pop in here and check this out. So glad I did, this place was awesome to learn about the history of the area and the Wright Bros. It's amazing how far we have come since the humble day they changed the world. Make this a must stop. Maybe about and hour or so to go through and enjoy the historical information.
