Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

The Interpretive Center is a jewel. We had a volunteer take us over to the bicycle shop, which we enjoyed. This is definitely worth a visit.

We had no idea that that the Wright Brothers did most of the real work of discovering Aviation and building an entire industry in their hometown of Dayton OH. This step into the past to get a full appreciation of the genius and dedication of these incredible brothers is a MUST SEE!
Don’t miss out on this amazing glimpse into the the struggles, challenges and the successes they achieved as entrepreneurial excellence!
It’s definitely a worthwhile visit!

We recently visited the Wright-Dunbar Interpretive Center and then the adjacent Wright Cycle Company shop, both on S. Williams St., two units of the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park. Our tour at the Interpretive Center began with an interesting 30-minute-long film about the Wright brothers and their accomplishments (this film, “On Great White Wings,” is also available for viewing at the NPS website.)

The museum is filled with well-done exhibits depicting the background of the Wright brothers’ advancements in aviation. Exhibits also cover personal information about them, i.e., Orville & Wilbur’s upbringing, as well as their early professions as printers and then bicycles manufacturers. On the second floor is a small area containing the Parachute Museum.

After touring the museum, the NPS ranger on duty in the Visitor Center escorted us to the adjacent bicycle shop to see the items there (currently, visitors must stop in at the Aviation Trail Visitor Center to be brought over there). It was great to see the actual site where the Wright brothers began pursuing their dream of aviation while manufacturing bicycles in earnest.

We spent about two hours in all at these two sites and gained a greater knowledge and respect for the achievements of these two “dreamers and doers.” From there, we headed to Carillon Historical Park next (see separate review), which also contains a Wright brothers museum.

Admission here was free, as was onsite parking.

We thought you could go inside, you can't. You can go into the interpretation center and learn some Wright Brothers history. The displays are nice and informative. You can grab up a aviation trail map and don't miss out on earning a bear.

The drive up to the complex was on a cobbled street so it made for a noisy ride.

We parked in the designated lot and there was ample open spaces. It was right across from the entrance to the museum.

The entire complex was operated by the National Park Service. Building and grounds were nicely maintained. The exhibits were very good and contained lots of good information about the Wright Brothers but also Paul Dunbar, a poet and friend. Well done by the NPS and free for everyone.

The museum was two stories and was a wealth of information about the Wright Brother’s family and also their entrepreneurial undertakings. It started with the creation of their printing press and publishing a daily newspaper, then on to the manufacturing of their higher end bicycles and finally to the key experiments that resulted in a successful airplane design.

I was impressed with the information they received from the Smithsonian the Wright Brothers were able to refine the designs, create a way to control a plane in flight and make the first wind tunnel to test their theories. Hands on exhibits also helped you see things in action. A replica of the Wright Flyer was in the lobby area. One of the first original planes built (#5?) was located inside the Wright Brothers National Museum.

On the second floor there was the actual location of the printing press (original lost in time), more details about the family, a room about John Dunbar, the poet, and finally the parachute museum.

In the future the actual Wright Brothers factory building will be renovated and opened. That was a short drive away.

Ranger did great job explaining the history of bicycles and specifically about safety bicycles that the Wright brothers made. The bicycle shop is small but a must see.

If you're near the Dayton area, this is a must-see. Tour the former bike shop of the Wright brothers and see where they designed and built the first aircraft. Bonus points, you can walk only a few hundred yards away and see the site of their former house (the actual building was bought by Henry Ford and hauled off to Michigan). The original floorplan is still laid out though, so you can stand in the place of their living room, where the brothers set around a table and dreamed up mankind's first steps off of the Earth.

We were able to look into the windows at the bicycle shop, but the complex was closed the day we tried to visit. Make sure to check to see their hours since they vary due to Covid.

Great museum, very helpful staff. Covers life of Wright brothers and their endeavors from printing presses to bicycles to development of the first powered air plane.
