Ranger talk was very good, displays good. Signage outdoors needed work. Clean, easy to get to, plenty of parking. If you have an aviation buff in your family, you must go. If not, might not be as meaningful to you, but still very interesting to learn how the Wright Brothers figured things out.

The family really enjoyed. The Wright Brothers Visitor Center is a major part of this memorial and has great museum exhibits. The name "memorial" is somewhat misleading because it is more than what I consider a memorial.

We went on a cold, windy winter day, and near the memorial itself it was crazy cold--but still worth it.

Hadn't been to the site in years, probably like 20 years. It was interesting to be reminded of things I had forgotten. For anyone whom likes aviation related topics you will like it here. I found $8.00 a little steap for two of us to go here on a rainy day as we couldn't walk to the Memorial due to the hard rain.

A very nice place to go with the family and explore and learn while still having a fun time. I would definately recommend a stop at the Memorial during your vacation.

Growing up as an airforce kid this was an amazing place to visit with the family especially Dad who has been flying since he was 16! The park ranger gave a good talk so do that first then the museum. Seeing the first flight mile stones was interesting to see too.
