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

The staff is a wealth of information, I learned about the history of Kites thing I never knew. They are the reason we plan to return for the International KIte Fest.

I visited the World Kite Museum with an open mind as my friend was very interested. I was pleasantly surprised to see the scope of the museum. 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

We didn't know they charged and thought $4 apiece for seniors was too much....they'd get a lot more traffic if they only charged $2... We just visited the gift shop. No shirts in our sizes. Run by volunteeers. Tiny place found by accident as Long Beach Peninsula tourist info is notorious for not giving you addresses or directions..

We are not museum people but decided to give it a try after locals suggested we visit. We really enjoyed it, not only for the amazing kites but we learned so much. We watched a video from the island of Bali where they capture live bats with kites and they were big bats! Parents were teaching their kids how to... More
