The Wright Brothers National Memorial offered so much history on the beginning of flight that it should be a no miss while in the Nags Head area of North Carolina.
The memorial and the history really make you think what we now take for granted. The information given at the memorial is a great recap of all the Wright brothers went through to achieve their goal. This is something you should stop and see if you ever get the chance.
The Wright Brothers National Monument is unique in the way it tells the story of the "first flight." The exhibits, displays and especially the full size sculpture on the sand are memorable, for sure. This is an attraction that should not be missed, especially if you have kids. Our visit was a great place to relax, and learn in an... 更多
Wright Brothers Memorial is a very well maintained attraction. Also very informative about history of flight as well as many portraits of different flyers and pilots. Does involve a fair amount of walking if you want to see everything in this state park. 7$ per person and receipt will get you back in for free for 7 days.
Definitely recommend this historic National Memorial if you are visiting the area. Rich in history and jaw-dropping thinking that modern flight got its start in such a rural backdrop. Very well maintained park and the Memorial is beautiful.
I wasn't really expecting much from this experience, but when in Kitty Hawk, why would you pass up the chance to see a place where such amazing history was made. Well, the people who put together the National Memorial to the Wright Brothers did an amazing job. We paid $8 each admission. There was a brief presentation that explained the... 更多
A great site maintained by the NPS. The museum and markers showing the Wright Brothers first four flights are interesting, but the star of the location is the Wright Brothers Monument on the top of the hill from which one can see ocean and sound views and the state park to the south. If you're a pilot, consider flying in... 更多
nicely done park with the initial takeoff and landing spots clearly marked and setup for walking. also next to a working airstrip. during our visit, a Comanche was doing a run up on that strip and it struck me how far aviation has come. definitely recommend this stop for all.
Enjoyed stopping at the museum. Long walk up the hill to the top. No seats along the way. Once you are at the top if you are able it is worth the walk for the view of the grounds and sounding area.
Museum was on the small side. Liked the fact that they still had the original rail from the first flight. Good view from the memorial hill. Definitely recommend! It would be cool if they had a bigger museum with more to see and maybe a reproduction that kids could sit in.
