  • We had visited Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hills last year and wanted to see the rest of the story. This site is a NPS treasure and aptly describes the Wright Bros journey from playing with a small helicopt...  more »
  • This site, like many NPS historic sites, is actually a reproduction of the building that the Wright Brothers once worked in. Most people don't realize that business was much more fluid a hundred years...  more »
  • Very organized. Excellent crowd . very high line vehicles. The grounds one of a kind. A must visit. If only to visit the museum. Great history  more »

  • I'm so surprised this museum doesn't get more attention. Much bigger than I expected. It has a beautiful layout. We really enjoyed it with the children.
  • Honestly I was a bit disappointed. Perhaps I set my expectations too high or something. I was expecting a lot more artifacts but most of it were replications. It seems as if there's nothing left or perhaps another museum is holding all this stuff. Where was this famous windbox tunnel they used to perfect the wings? The staff was very accommodating though and it was nice to be able to walk down the street to 7 Hawthorne Rd. They've done a good job of preserving what they do have all things considered. I just left feeling like I wasn't fulfilled. Even one of thier actual planes is off at another facility. Why not here? I'm still glad I could say I visited.
  • This building and the national historical park next door was a great way to understand the story of the Wright Brothers. It's not a big museum, you will see everything within an hour or two. But there is no charge to get in. Perfect for a rainy day.
  • National Park Service operated. Interesting and quick to go through. One of the buildings is the Wright's Brother old bike shop. They also have some interactive displays that help you understand concepts of flight.
  • To stand were great men of invention once stood is an honorable thing.ove tis place.
