Explore a special tour of the Wright brothers’ home and their cycle shop next door, including the rarely-seen second floors of each building. Then step outside to try your hand at a replica of their wind tunnel, one of the tools that helped solve the mystery of flight. 

In the machine shop, learn about the Wrights, plus machinist Charlie Taylor, and discover how they made their heavier-than-air flying machine. Finally, find out how the Wright home and cycle shop came to Greenfield Village with a special presentation about their preservation.

Join the celebration and experience the years that led to the historic first flight with this forward-looking family.
