I was very taken by the Wright Cycle complex. It did give a good history if the Wright Brothers early days as well as their trials in the development of their airplane. Great complex and fun to visit.

The bike shop was not very exciting. However, the larger center had much more to see and explore. I'm usually not a fan of movies in museums, but this one was worth it. The "hidden" parachute museum on the second floor was small but quite...More
