“Very educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

We learned a lot about the Wright Brothers and the history of flight by stopping at this memorial. The 25 minutes presentation in the visitor center is well worth the time. Make sure to wear your walking shoes, bring a hat and a bottle of water. There is a lot of walking involved and no shade.

Very interesting and informative. The ranger that gave the presentation did a wonderful job. The hike to the monument is well worth it.

“Very small museum with replica of plane”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

My son is a pilot so we thought it was appropriate to visit this memorial. There is not much to see here except a small museum and a replica of the plane and glider that the brothers used for their first flights. You can go outside and see the actual sight of the flights and there is a large monument at the top of a hill for a good walk and view of the area. The admission seemed steep at $5.00 per person for what it was.

“Interesting”

Worth going for a short sideline but not an all day venture. Maybe after a day at the beach. Funeral is in the imaging the first flight. Go in the morning or later afternoon.

“A must see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

After seeing the plane at the Smithsonian this monument and museum was a must see. Take the time to read the exhibits and tour the museum, then go out and walk the trail up to the monument and you then can appreciate the whole story.
