I wish the place was better looked after, it is situated in one of the respectable Corbusier Architectural spaces in Ahmedabad. However, it needs major intervention in terms of design, navigation, information. The city has so much to offer, I wish we cared more. However, I urge everyone to make a visit to see the most exquisite handmade kites ever.

I never knew that kites could be so interesting. The museum is very small and not flashy, but the information there so interesting.

Unique museum with collection of kites..the evolution of the kites ... the role of kites in invention of the aeroplane by wright brothers.. the old photographs of great scientists...worth a visit as it is in the same complex of the main museum of Ahmedabad city... but the kite museum needs some facelift to attract more visitors
