Very interesting information and displays. The make your own kite craft for the kids was a great idea, too! Kept them entertained while we reviewed the displays.

This is a small place that charges a lot to see--kites ! We never made it past the counter. We stayed across the street for a week, and never saw anyone go in. Tells you something, eh ?

The best part about this museum is the variety of kites they have assembled. They have gigantic ones strung up above your head and along the walls, and tiny kites in glass displays. They had video stations set up throughout the museum to learn more,...More

I'm not huge on kites but this museum was pretty cool. The hall of posters of their kite was kind of a waste and making your own cheap kite was pretty kid level, but the displays and information about kites was really impressive and interesting....More

There weren't a ton of kites there from other countries but there was enough to make a stop if you like kites. The lady that was working there was wonderful and it was a beautiful town.

The museum was good to see all the different kind of kites, the fee is okay, but not the cost. Learned about the different kinds of kites. Wished they would have edited better some of the videos that they showed about kites.

We took our kids here and I'm glad we did. They liked seeing all the different types of kites around (I never imagined using kites during a war like they did in WWII!). We all liked the exhibit on people who combine kites with vehicles,...More

It cost to go in but not very much but worth the small fee that keeps the museum kept up. There are many interesting kites from many nations and many designs from Japan--China and the US. Countries all over the world come to the International...More
