I've visited Carillon with family and friends. The history of Dayton is presented in a fun & rememberable way, while not being overwhelming. Dayton is truly a great city that does not get the credit it deserves. You'll be amazed by what you'll learn here.
The carousel is unique and adorned with 'rides' representing Dayton. The outside is a replica of homes & stores in that area from the age of the Wright Brothers. You and your family will not be disappointed.

Park was interesting and a worthwhile experience. Was a little disappointed with the construction going on and several things closed because of that but I guess it's not avoidable. I would like to visit again if ever back in the area.

This park is a treasure trove of history about it’s mother city, Dayton. The park runs tours of Hawthorn Hill, the “mansion” owned by Orville Wright. Both brothers Intended to live in the house however Wilbur died prior to the completion of Holmes construction. The docent/guide was excellent and had a deep and personal knowledge of everything Wright.

The home they call a “mansion” holds many pieces of the original furniture. As a guest I wished to see the park have more revenue so they could fund the complete restoration and show the entire home. The tour includes 1st & 2nd floors which appears, based on photographs, to be a very close approximation of the way that the home looked when it was occupied by the Wright family. There is a lower level and 3rd floor that is not open to the public that apparently has finished living spaces. It’s easy to see where the house and the history of the family could be a stand alone attraction.

The park holds more Wright history including one of their bike shops and one of the original planes. The Smithsonian has the 1st one flown at Kitty Hawk.

Additionally, there are several buildings that retrace the business and industrial history of Dayton and include the stories of the people who made this city famous.

There are more buildings under construction which will hold additional displays being built. We got a feeling that goal is to give visitors a similar feeling to what you experience when you visit historic Colonial Williamsburg Virginia. It is easy to see that they could dress people in costume who would be there to regale the stories and tell visitors about the history of Dayton.

If you are in Dayton or anywhere remotely close, and you have any curiosity about the Wright brothers and the history of flight, this park is a must see destination.

We spent a couple hours here exploring both the inside and outdoor exhibits.

Until that day, I never realized how much manufacturing and industry was started here in Dayton. From NCR (cash registers), Delco (automotive), Frigidaire (refrigerators and home appliances) to aerospace, bicycles and more. The exhibits were through and detailed. Well designed and informative.

A working indoor carousel was located next to an indoor scale model train setup.

From the historical viewpoints there were a number of buildings relocated here from around d Dayton. A wooden covered bridge, an old clock tower (a climb up the 100+ stairs gave a good view of Dayton and the river), homes, cabins and so forth. Majority of them were open and decorated in the period.

One building contained just bicycles from the many manufacturers that used to be her in Dayton, I.e. Huffy, that I rode around as a youngster. Another building documented the effects and impacts of the the 1913 flood that destroyed a good part of Dayton. Trolley, trains and a bus were housed in a larger building and a docent was quite helpful in explaining the history of each before we were allowed to walk inside. A first class train coach was polished wood and quite plush for the day.

The 1905 Wright Flyer III was housed in its own museum building and amazingly restored from at least 80% of the recovered materials from storage in Kitty Hawk. Definitely worth seeing even if it’s not the first one that took flight. Other parts of the museum covered the Wright Brothers early days as printer and bicycle manufacturers. Guides here were helpful and gave good insight and details.

The Carillion Tower in front of the park is functioning but unfortunately we never heard it play during our visit.

Admission was reasonable for all that you get to see.

A fantastic museum showing the industrail muscle of Dayton. I have profound respect for this city and the many marvels they have brought mankind. The exhibits are wonderfully done, interesting, and varied. I particularly liked the Wright building showcasing their efforts to get a heavier than air machine into the air. If you're in Dayton, spend a day enjoying the exhibits in this wonderful museum.

So much Dayton History in one place. Each building has a different "theme" of Dayton history ( Cash register museum, Prohibition exbibit, Bicycle museum, all the antique cars and trolleys, old news papers, the flood museum, and so much more). The Wright Brothers National Historic site is also located on the property , you can see one of the original Wright Brothers planes and other historic memorabilia as well as a replica of the Wright Brothers Bicycle Shop. To get to each of the buildings you will have to go outside, there is a paved walking trail.

This rates as one of our favorite experiences. We spent almost all day here. We never knew Dayton had such a history of invention and business. I think we viewed all of the displays in the hall and visited all of the buildings. We liked that there were guides throughout the park to explain exhibits. We learned more than we anticipated and found it all interesting. It was a lovely day so it made it nice to be outdoors.

While the main building has some interesting items and the volunteers were very helpful, NOWHERE did it say that the other buildings could only be reached by walking. Due to age and health conditions, we were not able to walk the long distances between them and so we only got to view the main exhibit.

A bit of history captured with old trolley cars, old buses, a re-creation of the Wright Bros bicycle shop, etc. A very nice way to spend an afternoon.

This is a great place to visit with both indoor and outdoor things to see and do. Unfortunately, we were there on a rainy day and also the park was going through renovations so we didn't get to try the cafe or the brewery. What was open was very interesting and informative. We enjoyed the museum with the exhibits and museum store, and the Wright Brothers National Museum which houses the Wright Flyer III. There are other buildings on the property, but because of the rain, we opted not to visit them this time. There are guides at the buildings to give you more information if you'd like. We will be back in better weather when more things are open.
