‍The Wright brothers' tuxedos are now on display at the Wright Brothers National Museum. It is located on Unnamed Rd, Dayton, OH 45439. Though the men often worked in grime, the brothers' appearance was never shabby. Susan Wright wore a hand-knit cape, which is also on display at the museum.

The museum is owned by the National Park Service, which operates at Kitty Hawk. The museum's expansion was made possible by a $250,000 grant from the Harry A. Toulmin, Jr. and Virginia B. Toulmin Fund, created in honor of the couple's son and daughter-in-law who helped secure the Wright brothers' patent for a flying machine. The couple lived in Dayton for 41 years, and their descendants are involved with the museum's development.
