Excellent historic park. Lots to learn and see about the history and evolution of Dayton's many innovations and the creators behind them. The tour guides and staff are very helpful as well. Definitely set aside a few hours to see it all.

Came to this park for a wedding reception, it was absolutely beautiful. Very interesting for people of all ages! Being able to walk through the old train cars was a great highlight, they were so elegant and fun. 10/10 would recommend coming for a fun outing, and would highly recommend it for a wedding reception or event!

We had a great time. People there were very helpful. Was disappointed the marry go round wasn't included in the price of admission. Food at the brewery was very good and wait staff was fantastic.

My husband and I paid a visit to Carillon Historical Park and were WOWED by it! The artifacts depicting Dayton's and Ohio's history are absolutely amazing. We throughly enjoyed the National Park's Service Wright Brothers display. Our guide, Tom, was a wealth of information and talked us through the Wright's history from engineering bicycles to designing and piloting the first aircraft plus other unknown tidbits. This park is definitely worth a visit.

It is a very beautiful place. If you want to visit this park, make sure you arrive there before noon, because it takes about three to four hours to go around majority of the things and they close at 4pm. Moreover, another problem you may come across is that it is self-guided, which can be challenging.
