We toured the museum which had great exhibits and a lot to read. It was very interactive which makes it great as well. We also were able to check out one of the locations for the Wright Brothers printing and bicycle shop that was basically adjacent to the museum. It was neat to be a in a place where the... More

Although Dayton Aviation may not be considered a travel destination, but when combined with US Air Force Museum, it is well worth the trip. The Wright bicycle shop is interesting, but it is small. The Dunbar House (right next door) and museum and attached visitor center are larger and very interesting. The flying field, located about 15 minutes away, is... More

On a clear day, you can't see very much, but being proximate to some of the roots of aviation history (meaningful history just before our lifetime) gives some a thrill. I'm one of them. Dayton was far less influential in aviation history than it claims, but it was, certainly, influential enough. This dandy little park is worth a visit.

There are different sites for the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park. Combine a visit to the National Museum of the United States Airforce with a visit to the Wright Brothers National Memovial overlooking the area and the Huffman Prairie Flying Field Interpretative Center high on the hill on the edge of the Wright Patterson Air Force Base. There are... More

This is a great add on to the Air Force Museum, your already in the spirit of flight, and it's not that far away.

Nice place to stop for a quick visit. We went mid week and we were the only ones there. Staff was very accommodating and opened the cycle shop for us and answered all our questions.

Stopped here as part of our aviation tour of Dayton. It was storming while we were there so didn't get a chance to walk the grounds. Watched a movie about the Wright brothers and the nearby property used for their experiments then walked through the small museum.
