About Carillon Historical Park

Carillon Historical Park’s mission is to inspire generations by connecting them with the unique people, places, and events that changed Dayton and the world. Our vision is a world inspired through our unique regional stories. Home to the Wright Brothers National Museum; Carillon Brewing Co., the nation’s only fully operational production brewery in a museum; and a 65 acre open-air museum, Carillon Historical Park is home to over 30 historic structures and cares for over three million artifacts. It is also the gateway to Hawthorn Hill, Orville Wright’s success mansion. You can’t go a day without Dayton. The Gem City is home to the airplane, the automobile self-starter, the cash register, the pop top, and so much more. By the turn of the 20th century, Dayton had more patents, per capita, than any U.S. city, and one-sixth of the nation’s corporate executives had spent a portion of their career at legendary Dayton company National Cash Register (NCR). Dayton’s extraordinary history has undoubtedly impacted billions of lives. With a hand-carved carousel, 4-D theatre, trains, slides, living history experiences, thousands of artifacts, extensive educational programming, and so much more, Carillon Historical Park brings Dayton’s past to life in a way that is fun for the whole family.
