The Wright Brothers came to this region with a dream, seeking the strong winds and open spaces for testing their aircraft and in 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright would fly the first controlled airplane. At the Visitor Center, behold a full scale reproduction of the 1903 Powered Flyer, the 1902 Wright Glider, and other fascinating displays. Stand atop Big Kill Devil Hill — where glider tests were conducted. Explore the reconstructed Living Quarters and Hangar and Centennial Pavilion, which features exhibits on the history and challenges of aviation. There is a small entrance fee valid for 7 days. Children under 16 are free.
