This is a neat little site to visit. It had lots of little houses and buildings to see that contained a lot of history about Dayton, Ohio. The highlights were the Print Shop (ask for a tour), the train car depot, and the best was seeing one of the actual Wright Brothers Flyers.

While we leisurely strolled through the spacious museums of Dayton's history, elementary, high school and groups of college students were actively engaged here. The staff/docents were well skilled and added to our experience. Here the Wright Flyer III resides, restored under the eye of Orville Wright shortly before his death in 1947. A visit to the CarillonBrewing Co. to sample... More

Really awesome. Far better than even a few years ago. A highlight of Dayton! I'm a life long resident of the area and I learn more each time I visit Carrillon Park.

We had business guests to entertain and I took them to Carillon Park for the afternoon. It was a great success because they not only enjoyed it but also said they had no idea Dayton had such a rich history of innovation. The exhibits are very well done and laid out without so you can do just part of the... More

Carillon Park has a museum, a café, and a brewery that serves great food and spirits. If bringing family, your kids can also fly kites in the Park. It is near the Marriott, downtown Dayton, and the UD arena.

I love Carillon Historical Park. It is chock full of important history - Wright Brothers, Enigma Code Breaking, National Cash Register and much more. The first building gives you and overview of the large collection of very important companies and inventions that got their start in Dayton. Also inside is a carousel for the kids - it's historic too. Outside... More

This museum covers alot of ground with multiple buildings, and it seems that I find something new every time I go! Not only will you find plenty of information about the wright brothers but also less know important inventions from this city! Also It Is Important To Mention The shows (Although Not with live people) are interesting and Fun To... More

New brew pub restaurant on sight for the general public. Service was a little slow. Food leans more toward German than anything else. Great craft beer selection. Also able to take tours and see how its brewed. Always an interesting festival going on nearly every month.

First visit to this place and it was exceptional in every way but one. The new brewery was a total let down - very,very disappointing. Before visiting we looked this up on the internet and thought it said there were brewery tours every day so we went expecting to take one of these. On arrival no one greeted or even... More

Had some great tidbits of Miami Valley history including the Wright Flyer III National Historical Site. The new historical brewery and tavern was very good.
