Planned on the Art Museum.
Carillon Park - is there something there besides a brewery? I can google it, thanks for bringing it up.
There is quite a bit there, but the highlight is the Wright Flyer III, certainly the world's indisputably "first practical airplane" and therefore, logically, the world's first airplane as we know it, versus the Wright Flyer I at the Smithsonian, an uncontrollable powered glider at best.

As you like walking, there are several national natural landmarks that would make good day trips from Dayton. Perhaps also check out eastern Indiana and northern Kentucky, as well.

Catch the Dayton Air Show if you still around. The best in the country.

Left Dayton 2 years ago, here are some of my ideas for things truly unique to the area that I've missed:

The Dayton Celtic Festival(July 28-30) is a great experience. Rare to find such a high quality free festival anywhere else. I've debated flying back just for this.
Dayton Celtic Festival
Air Force Museum
Clifton Gorge followed by a stroll through Yellow Springs(mini-Portland)

Then some food you don't find anywhere else:
Dayton style pizza - Marion's/Classic Pizza in Huber/etc
Rancher's in New Carlisle - Essentially a small locally owned version of Arby's but better. Don't be put off by the appearance(though I heard they got some tornado damage recently)

We went up to New Bremen a few weeks ago to visit The Bicycle Museum of America. This is just off 75 about an hour north of Dayton.

Bicycle Museum of America

Airstream makes campers just east of there at the same exit from 75. They advertise a factory tour. We did not take it as we needed to get back home with our grandkids.

The Armstrong Air and Space Museum is just a little farther north in Wapakoneta.

Some close to home and others a bit of a drive, but I would include...

The John Johnston estate in Piqua
The Serpent Mound or the Miamisburg Mound (or both)
Hawthorn Hill (the Wright Brothers estate in Oakwood)
Paul Laurence Dunbar House
Carillon Park
Glen Helen & Clifton Gorge
Young's Dairy
Carriage Hill Farm
The Air Force Museum
The Robert Patterson Homestead on Brown St near UD

The Wool Gathering, a fantastic annual Young's Dairy fiber festival, is Sept 16-17 this year. Lots of family-friendly activities, fresh air and sunshine, vendors, food, ice cream, sheep shearing and herding demonstrations with free admission and parking.
