This is a beautiful Historical Park with an excellent restaurant and brewery. They make their own beer and soda (root beer and vanilla cream soda). You can watch the beer being made. You can order flights of beer and they will let you sample. Servers are dressed in period clothing.

I was so impressed by the quality and quantity of both the indoor and outdoor displays. So many products we use today came from Dayton, Ohio so this is place is great for locals and out of town folks. Both young and old will be entertained. We spent almost 3 hours there and did not look at everything.

Enjoyable! Christmas lights and activities were nice. It was very busy. Summertime it's nice to get out and walk to see everything. Food area was neat. Nice area to sit and eat indoors or out.

I wish I had more time here. Honestly, I took a quick buzz through the museum looking at some cool NCR exhibits, then went to see the Wright exhibit. The had the original/reconstructed Wright Flyer III. It was amazing! Second oldest plane in the world. Really, the oldest true flight plane in the world. The staff at the Wright building... More

We went to this park as part of a field trip. It was so much fun that the kids have been asking to go back. So many things to see and do there. Highly recommend this for Ohio history reports or things like that. The staff was fully engaged and extremely helpful.

This has been a great place all my life! So when I was married there on the bridge and had my dream reception in the travel museum I was delighted, On our 1st anniversary my husband surprised me with a vow renewal under the bells. We love this place and eat at the brewery often!

The history of Dayton in objects from a early 19th Century tavern to the moon, The tavern dinner is an excellent opportunity to experience life as it was. My most recent visit was with coworkers and my granddaughter.

I drove 3 and a half hours from Michigan to Ohio to visit the Wright Brothers house as well as the Carillon and I am so glad I did! Right now Hawthorn Hill is only open on Wednesday and Saturday for visits and only with reservations. This site is quite remarkable. The house sits on an elevated piece of land.... More
