Educational groups are always welcome at Wright Brothers National Memorial. You can use our experiential, curriculum-based lesson plans and other site-information found on our website to take your group on a self-guided tour of the park. It is suggested that groups rotate between the camp building, the hangar, the monument on the hill, 1903 sculpture on the backside of hill, and the visitor center. If time is limited, we recommend driving to the 1903 sculpture and then walking up to the base of the monument. Daily ranger programs are also available at scheduled times and vary depending on the season. Based on staffing levels, a park ranger may also be available to offer a program for your group.Contact us if you have questions or would like to request a ranger program.
If you wish to have the Wright Brothers National Memorial entrance fee waived, you must request an Academic Fee Waiver from the Outer Banks Group Fee Manager at least four weeks in advance of your scheduled visit. If approved, you will receive an approval letter from the Fee Manager. The letter must be presented at the park entrance station upon arrival at the site. If you do not have an approval letter with you when you arrive at the site, you will be charged the applicable entrance fees.
