“A peaceful place”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

If you like history, this is the place for you. They have lots of info on the first flight of the Wright Brothers as well of exhibit to view. You can climb atop the hill they took flight from and see how far they flew. This is a good value for your money as your receipt allows you to go back for 5 days. Nice gift shop with lots of goodies. Prices not too bad. The older girls thought this was boring but it seemed that families with small children were really enjoying themselves.

“great day trip”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

just a great day trip. The weather was nice for August and lots to see. The hike up to the memorial was even nice. Once you got to the top, the view was just beautiful. This is a must for any visitor and worth every view!!

“Great Learning Opportunity for all Ages”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

This was one of the highlights of my recent trip. I had been wanted to visit the Wright Brothers Museum for years now. I was not disappointed.

A whole history of aviation in one area. Our Ranger was a great storyteller and I found myself on the edge of my seat several times during his story.

A well done presentation of what happened on that day the first flight happened. Easily worth about 3 hours of your time.

“We touched history”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Extremely well laid out and preserved. To stand and touch where powered flight began is inspiring, especially for anyone who life has been affected by powered flight. A true must see for anyone fascinated by history and anyone connected to aviation.
