Historical attraction. Low price. Significant facts on first flight. Lots of walking if you go up the hill to the monument. Entire visit took less than 2 hours.

You got to go! This is a real fine place to stop by. Watch a video, tour the 2 museum buildings, listem to a Park Ranger presentation, and walk to the monument(s). Great for old and youg!

Great display. Wide open, with vigorous winds, that make it clear how Orville and Wilbur selected this desolate beach to make their flights in 1903. Monument is lovely. An outdoor model of the plane is great for climbing by children, and photos. Ranger talks are available ... first of the day 11:00 AM.

Watch the documentary to get to know the history. Must go early in the day to by pass the rush.

If you're in the Outer Banks, you must stop by the Wright Brothers National Memorial. The view on top of the hill is worth the visit even if you're not into aviation history. It's spectacular. The talk was pretty interesting and I enjoyed the plane sculpture on the other side of the hill from the memorial. (Don't miss this!)
