saw awesome sections of hanging Japanese kites and Chinese kites, a collection of posters from the annual kite festivals, and watched a couple having fun in the build your own kite section. Very nice gift shop with a knowledgeable and friendly staff person. The displays are different each time I visit. I found a colorful windsock for a toddler this... More

Several of the recent reviews have provided accurate, positive descriptions of the Kite Museum. Like some of them, we were surprised at how interesting the museum is & how much we learned. Definitely worth a visit!

Wonderful exhibit of kites from Japan and other nations. The one that caught most people's eye that was in my group of 14, were the kites that were used during World War ll. The information was fantastic to learn. Admission rates are very reason able for all, especially seniors and children.

We learned so much at this museum for how small it was. It was overwhelming all the kites we saw there. There were new ones every time we turned around, even when we looked in places we thought we had already seen. We learned about how kites are used for hunting in Bali, the ways kites were used during World... More

Great exhibit this year featuring Japan and Japanese kites. Kids can make their own flyable kite for free. This is always an interesting place to visit and though we have been there dozens of times, there is always something new to see.

You don't have to be a kite lover or kite nut to enjoy this place. We lucked out and caught the last day of a video exhibit of kite ballet and the interview with the world champ. Amazing how he can make three kites dance and swirl and twirl into patterns and forms with such grace and beauty. There was... More

I was really interested in all the international kites on display. I thought they were very well displayed. After watching the video of the annual kite event in Long Beach, i was eager... More

Not expecting much on the small town of Longbeach, WA, I was presently surprised while visiting the kite museum. Little known facts about the history of kites and kite flying would be interesting for the whole family. Children can be engaged in making their own kites while adults view a video of a world champion stunt kite flyer who is... More
