The Wright Brothers are known world wide as the brothers who created the plane. They took the first flight and their memorial is boring and unentertaining.
If you plan on visiting the beaches of North Carolina and happen to be near the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kitty Hawk, NC, skip it and save money, time and energy.
Yes, the Wright Brothers memorials is a lesson in history. Yes, there is a bit of nostalgia around seeing the plans for the first airplane and then seeing the plane in real life. But, while the museum may be worth a few minutes, the Memorial is nothing but a statue.
A very long, hot walk will take you from the museum to the memorial. Once you complete the long walk, you can gaze at stone and plaques. That is it.
Save yourself the time, the energy and the money. Research the Wright Brothers and their accomplishments from your laptop on the beach!
