We toured the Kite Museum on a rainy day in July. It was not busy so we took our time reading facts, watching videos and looking at all the kites on display. Learned a lot of interesting facts about kites. Enjoyable...well worth it.

This museum is great for kids and adults. It has some activities that let the kids take away a small kite and they also get some touch and feel opportunities.

If you like either kites or history, this is a "must do" when you are in Long Beach. Your admission price helps support the work of the museum. Consider buying a yearly membership.

This is a great choice for those who are interested in all things kite. Nostalgia and info. A great resource for those interested in the history of kiting. It used to be free but now sports a minimal charge for entry. A must stop for serious kite-heads. Fly, be free.

I wanted to take my Girl Scout troop in, but it was just too expensive. We need to get the prices lowered or a discount for groups.

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.
