“Experience History”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

If you are in the Dayton area, this small but very well run and maintained complex is well worth the visit. See the Wright Brothers bicycle shop (the last one remaining). The rangers were very friendly and knowledgeable. The place is great for adults and children. I would allow 2-3 hours for a visit.

“Have To See!”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The Wright Brothers! What more can I say? They have done so much for mankind. Self taught engineers who overcame many obstacles in order to make the airplane a reality. From humble beginnings they became publishers, bicycle makers, and inventors. They never gave up pursuing their dreams though there were times that they thought of throwing in the towel. Attraction is well worth visiting and takes about 1.5 to 2 hours. A couple of blocks from the cycle site is remnants of the Wright home. Informative signs are on locations.

Loved the Victorian bicycle stands! Only one of the charming things you will find at the Wrights's bicycle shop.
