I went by myself and had a great time! Admission is 8 dollars into this huge park, with military ID its 1 dollar off. Their gift shop has tons of Dayton theme items. There is so much to learn; in the main building its focuses on Dayton's old companies like NCR and Delco. There is a little show with wax... More

A bit pricey for what it is. But if your kid loves trains as mine does, this is a good place! There is a building with a handfull of train displays. However, there is a working scale railway! It's only a dollar for all day rides. The trains are big enuf that grownups can, & should, ride along. But they... More

As a family we go here a couple of times a year and have a very enjoyable and interesting afternoon. Try to go on a warmer weekend as the exhibits are spread out over a number of buildings so there is a lot of walking around outside. Weekends are also good since more of the buildings are open usually with... More

I read about the park in a guidebook and expected a few exhibits in a couple of buildings. Instead, there are many exhibits in a group of historical buildings. In some of them, such as the printing building, guides show visitors how old historic equipment worked. It's a great place to walk on a nice day.

Had the pleasure of eating here recently. Great food! Must try the Apple Tart for dessert (save room). Staff was friendly. Come early...it gets busy fast and there will be a wait. Will definitely come back

We took our 2 teenage boys and our 8 year old to the Brewing Company. The building is absolutely beautiful. We thought there was going to be a tour. Well, the volunteer that we spoke to said it's a three step tour. She was exactly right. So, if your going for a tour of a brewing company you might be... More

I have lived here all my life and never took the time to visit the museum here. I was so impressed when I did and learned a lot about Dayton. It was really awesome to see the Wright Brothers exhibit and the Wright Flyer. The staff working at the different museums were so nice and knowledgable. They really go out... More
