Long Beach Washington has the winds, so it's where you can fly a kite. The museum is in a modern building that contains lots of kites - some I would like to attempt to fly. Of most interest was the video that taledk about the use of kites by the USA during WWII and the kits wars in Japan. Worth... More

This was an amazing adventure. Our RV club went there for a tour and we made our own kites and then went outside to fly them. So much fun was had by all. Their gift shop was great. We bought 2 tees and enjoyed looking at all of the kites available for sale. Truly a magical place.

This small museum celebrates kite flying and the festival held on the nearby beach each summer. On the first floor one will find a small sales shop and a gallery of marketing posters from prior years. You Tube videos of festivals here and around the world may be watched in the first floor theater (but just as easily watched at... More

I have to admit I wasn't very enthusiastic when my wife wanted to stop here, but afterward I was glad we did. The kite displays were very interesting and the history of how kites were used in WWII was fascinating. I never thought kites could be so interesting.

Where else will you see and learn so much about kites? This is not for everybody, but to get so much history from around the world about kites is pretty cool. Don't expected to be "wowed" as it is a static/passive display.

We loved this small museum in Long Beach. It was really interesting to see the exhibits about the WWII kites, and the kites from around the world. I liked that the kids could make their own kite at a craft table, and that you could buy kites in the gift shop area.

Our visit was alright and there were some interesting kites for sure but the museum was more like a small town museum than a "WORLD" museum. There needs to be more history.

Breezy Long Beach has long hosted world kite competitions and this, probably the only kite museum in the world. Now well over a decade old in this space, it's really one of the best things to do on the Long Beach Peninsula. From the ancient Chinese through Ben Franklin, the Wright Brothers, World War II and the present day, it's... More
