Wright brothers plane, many cars that were invented in Dayton...Maxwell and Stoddad Dayton, Trains and the famous Concours De Elagance every Sept. plus a gift shop... More

For a small city, Dayton's impact on the world stage is tremendous. From the Wright Brothers first flight to the self-starting automobile, to the cash register; Dayton's history impacts almost everyone in this nation on a daily basis. This rich history is on daily display at the Carillon Historical Park. The highlight of the park is the Wright Flyer III.... More

There is a lot to see here, and for the $8.00 admission price, it is a good deal. If you are interested in Dayton history, this is the place to visit. You could easily spend a whole day here, and there is a restaurant on-site for a quick lunch.

The Carillon is a great place to visit any time of year. My 2 young children love the carousel, the history, visiting different buildings with items ranging from transportation modes, an old one room school house, a covered bridge, learning about the great men and businesses that began in Dayton.....it's all so interesting. The brew house is fun for lunch,... More

The main building feature inventions that have been made in the Dayton area. The kids enjoyed this building. We also spent some time in the Wright Brothers building, which has the original 1905 plane that they built and flew at Huffman Prairie

Carillon Park is an historical park that has several buildings with displays on the history of Dayton, Ohio. There are special events periodically. The newest addition is the Carillon Brewing Company. It is outstanding! The building is large and historically designed as a brewery in Dayton would be in the 1850s. The brewing process & recipes are also from the... More

An interesting day full of events and history. Be sure to come on Saturday where you may get to ride a miniature steam engine. Great for kids and elders because it's not so large.

The park was recommended by a stranger, one I wish I could thank. Dayton's place in the development of so many industries was an eye opener. The park was lovely, attractions well done, and staffed with people who love their city.

The website for the Carillon doesn't give much information, so as a result, we'd never taken the time to visit when we're in town. But with an empty afternoon and four teenagers to keep occupied, we decided to take the risk.Since the teens are all interested in inventions and engineering, this was a big hit! Even if the dozens of... More
