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 a screening area there, so it may be possible to request videos to be shown.
The upstairs section about the use of kites in wartime down through the centuries was likewise fascinating. Whether you are into kites or not, seeing how they were used in various wars as decoys, training devices, radar interrupters and is likely to be eye opening. It certainly was for us. And just the display of the various kite designs worldwide, with their amazing styles and colors from dragons to spaceships, was far more interesting than I expected it would be.
It seemed like amazing value for the modest $4 senior entry fee and prices at the gift shop were about the same or better than in town, seemed like. I'm always glad to support an all volunteer museum where people are involved for their love of the enterprise with my purchases.
