Wright Brothers & The Invention of the Aerial Age
The first part of this exhibition tells the story of how Wilbur and Orville Wright invented the airplane-who they were, how they worked, and what they accomplished. The second part shows how their monumental achievement affected the world in the decade that followed, when people everywhere became fascinated with flight. The exhibition includes many historic photographs and cultural artifacts, along with instruments and personal items associated with the Wrights.
