“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Not very big but very interesting to see the place where humans first flew. Kids really enjoyed it. Good way to spend a few hours.

“A must see.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Educational; great walk, great view, great presentation inside the museum. Overall great experience. Only $4.00 per adult admission into the National Park. Kids 15 (I think...it may be 14) and under are free. If you are in this area, please don't miss this landmark.

“A Must See for Airplane Enthusiasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

I was very guilty visiting this site on Father's day without my dad...a huge Wright Brother's fan. The national park provided great technical information and movies about the first flight. As an Ohioan, I always wondered why they left Ohio to go to North Carolina. The museum definitely tells you why, and if you visit on a nice summer day, you'll also understand why.

This is a memorial site. So, don't expect a lot of bells and whistles or sights that will make you ooh and ahh. It's preserving a very important part of history.

“Wright Brothers’ Memorial, 16 June 2013”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

What a beautiful breezy day to visit the very place powered flight became a reality. I cannot imagine this not being some sort of ‘Mecca’ for any aviation enthusiast. After enjoying the 20 MPH breezes on this 87º day, I must ask or at least research why Wilbur and Orville were experimenting in December…wasn’t it freezing? They knew better and succeeded.

This story has been told to all whom have a desire want to learn about it, so there isn’t much I can add. Just visit this historical place if you are anywhere near the Outer Banks. Experience a part of American (and World) History.

“Very cool museum, great exhibit on early aviation!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Very nice place for a picnic, but the walks were a bit extended. Beautiful exhibits on early aviation, including some nice real sized model planes.
