This will allow improvements to be made to the building's infrastructure and the installation of brand new interactive exhibits. During this closure, the grounds will remain open and information and bookstore services will be available in a temporary facility near the parking lot. In the temporary facility, you will find an information desk where you can speak to an NPS representative, five small poster-style exhibit panels to learn more about the Wright brothers’ story, and a bookstore. During your visit you can walk to the First Flight Boulder and Flight Line which mark the location where the Wrights first flew, peer into the reconstructed Wright brothers' camp building and hangar, visit the 1903 Bronze Sculpture of the First Flight featuring a life size model of the 1903 Wright Flyer, and walk to the top of Big Kill Devil Hill to the base of the Wright Monument.
