A lot to see and do
May 2021
This is a great place to visit with both indoor and outdoor things to see and do. Unfortunately, we were there on a rainy day and also the park was going through renovations so we didn't get to try the cafe or the brewery. What was open was very interesting and informative. We enjoyed the museum with the exhibits and museum store, and the Wright Brothers National Museum which houses the Wright Flyer III. There are other buildings on the property, but because of the rain, we opted not to visit them this time. There are guides at the buildings to give you more information if you'd like. We will be back in better weather when more things are open.

Tons of information and they are updating
May 2021
We got much more than expected besides the Wright brothers plane. They have building after building of antique cash registers, cars, carriages, guns, carousel, old school exhibit and the carillon. They are hard at work updating the grounds which are very large. Some of the exhibits have a musty smell so hopefully some of their funds are going to address that. You could spends several hours and not see everything. We loved the clever bike racks.

Great place to visit - especially Wright Brothers National Museum
May 2021
On Saturday 5/1, we went to the Carillon Historical Park. We happened to find this treasure by googling places to visit while in the Dayton, Ohio area. This is a great place to visit. It has a museum and various historical buildings that you can walk to on site. The greatest find in this place was the Wright Brothers National Museum! This museum should be the main attraction at this historical park, but it is hardly mentioned at all on their website. The Wright Brothers National Museum tour guide was very knowledgeable! I would recommend this historical park to everyone in the Dayton, Ohio area.

Amazing gem in dayton
Jan 2021 • Friends
I have been too Dayton many many times and can't believe I never checked this place out til now. This museum was a sprawling complex of many historical items and many outbuildings too explore a local and important history of the Dayton area. In one of the outbuildings you get to check out an actual wright flyer. Many of the exhibits we're very informative and this is definitely worth visiting.

Carillon Bell Tower at Christmas is Beautiful

Carillon Bell Tower at Christmas time is Beautiful. I recommend getting out of your vehicle to take some nice pictures of the lights.

Awesome Experience
Nov 2020
A friend and I stopped here to check this place out last weekend. It was an incredible visit. The museum inside showcases many of the businesses and industries that got their start in the Dayton area. The carousel is a unique menagerie in that there are few animals but objects that represent the companies from the Dayton, Ohio, area. How often can you ride a pop can or cash register on a carousel?

There is a nice village outside the the museum area, featuring buildings and relics from the past.

Overall, it gives a great overview of Ohio from yesteryear.

History of the Wright Brothers
Oct 2020 • Couples
A combo park and historical museum. Tickets are required for entry to the museum. It's a great stroll through historical buildings with period pieces arranged by theme. The best one is the building devoted to the Wright Brothers which has a part of the first of the planes they built. Also, don't forget to climb the tower for a good view.

Great Place to Visit!

Wonderful park to walk around and experience history! Our favorite spot was the Wright Brothers Museum, but they have many interesting exhibits! Very enjoyable to walk around when the weather is nice.

A must-see in the Dayton area.
Jun 2020
This is a gorgeous walk-through park that contains many historical exhibits, showing the history of the Dayton area. It is a must-see for showing your visitors, and yourself, the important history of this area. Fall is one of the best times to visit to enjoy the many large trees. My favorite is the car barn with trollies, railroad cars, and buses made in Dayton. A decent restaurant is on-site. One of the very early Wright Flyers is in its own gorgeous building. Allow plenty of time to see the many important exhibits.
