    Looks like it might have been on a normal business day over 100 years ago. Close by the Wight Brothers museum so just a short walk and a must see when you are in the neighborhood.  more »

    Normally a quick stop to view the historic cycle shop of the Wright Brothers and an accompanying museum. A great place to learn about the brother's work on cycles and the printing business that funded their research into powered flight.

    It is a very well done display of the history of the Wright Brothers. We went not expecting much but left very impressed with all that was available to see. Don't miss out on the short 30 movie which tells their story very well.

    Historical site the Wright brothers start their road to flying. Excellent 30 minute on the Wright brothers. One of many stops in the Dayton area.

    The Wright Brothers, Paul Dunbar and Parachutes all have a section of this museum. I skipped everything but the Wright Brothers because I was short on time. The staff was courteous, there was a nice (though small) gift shop and there were a couple of activities that were cool like flying a Wright Flyer Simulator and a movie about the Wright Brothers. The museum had a lot of information about life around Dayton and the life of the Wright Brothers outside of aviation. It's free to check it out - I recommend it for all aviation/history enthusiasts. Expect to spend about 90 minutes here.
