Carillon historical park has many wonderful experiences. The iconic Bell tower is a great place for a picnic out on the open lawn. There are events going on in the welcome center such as train conventions. The park also has several historical buildings important to Dayton Ohio. The wright brothers bycicle shop, a printing press and many other buildings are preserved and available to walk through and experience the rich history on the area.

Such a wonderful park full of great pieces all of which are a part of Dayton's rich history. It's the perfect place for families both young and old. Their new holiday lights were perfect for the hometown holiday adventure our family looks for each year.

Carillon Historical Park has a lot of nice things to offer. A Brewery/Restaurant which is pretty good. A Museum. The towering bells that play a little tune on the hour. And this time of year, they play holiday music. It's just a fun little getaway for all ages. I suggest a vist!

We went for the Christmas event and it was awesome! The lights were beautiful, we all loved the volunteers in period costumes, and the carousel and little train ride were fun to take my kids on. What a cool experience! Definitely worth the trip here, there is so much to see and learn!

We went for the Christmas lights and dinner. We really enjoyed the museum and the food at the brewing company was excellent. I held the fifth star because the museum should really be done in daylight to fully appreciate it and the restaurant was slow because of the volume of people at the holiday.
