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 ?

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.
