Ask to see the 30 minute film to orient yourself to the lives of the Wright Brothers. It is very well done and helps with understanding the museum exhibits. The hands on display were very good to help with understanding the principles of flight. The...More

I’ve been disappointed with tourist/history stops before. The only one worse then this was Salem, Massachusetts(stay away). This is more of a history of the Wright Brothers before flight/Dayton history museum. There are 2 rooms about the Wright Brothers in reference of airplanes and one...More

This is an unexpected "gem" located in old Dayton. This site includes the Orville & Wilbur Wright's last printing-shop and bicycle repair and assembly store still existing in Dayton. On exhibit is a replica of a pre-1903 Wright glider, with linked rudder and wing-warping. The...More

The Wright Brothers stand as a pillar of American tenacity and this museum, very humbly, tells of their upbringing and tenacity. The triumphant will to succeed comes out progressively through the displays and informative video. My kids did the Junior Ranger program, which made a...More
