“A great stop in Dayton, Ohio!”

Carillon Historical Park
Ranked #2 of 64 things to do in Dayton
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We take visitors here frequently, and they are amazed how little they knew of the influence Dayton has had in the growth of industry in the United States. The museum has many indoor and outdoor exhibits which appeal to all age groups. It is a year round attraction and worth a full day. There is a great cafe for lunch.

I have been here as a child, a teen, and now I'm taking my own children to Carillon Park, Believe it or not, there is a lot of history and important people that come out of the Dayton, Ohio area. Carillon Park is one of the best places to see & learn about how Dayton really helped shape the industrial age. You can see the locally famous carillon from interstate 75... if you are traveling, take the time to stop and visit the park. It is a true "gem" of the Gem City.

My son and I enjoyed our field trip to the Carillon so well we took the rest of the family back to visit. Its a great way yo spend a spring or summer day and offers an easy educational experience also.

Every year they put up beautiful Christmas lights. You can drive by and see them for free or get out of the car and experience them up close.
