Be aware that the main building is closed for renovations. But it was still a nice place to visit. We also were happy to take advantage of our National Park Pass. It is a senior citizen pass to any National Park, so we were able...More

Nice historical location, but the visitor's center was not open at the time. Great exercise for the family with an awesome view.

While the pavilion is currently under renovation this National Park is still a must see and an amazing memorial to American History. The Wright Brothers are a fascinating study of American inventors at their best.

This second visit was disappointing mainly because the museum is closed for renovation. That was a huge highlight last trip and we didn't know it was closed until we got in there. We still walked the grounds and went in the gift shop, and we're...More
