We were reluctant to pay the entry fee, but were glad we did. Learning how kites were used in wars and how competitive kite flying can be was also interesting. I particularly enjoyed seeing the kites from China as well as the miniature ones. Took...More

Popped in to check out the museum - just my husband and me. Small fee for walking through the 2 floors. Nice displays and cute items in the shop for sale. We enjoyed the display on WW2 target kites the most as my hubby is...More

One of the nice experiences available at the beach is the kite flying, so it's pretty appropriate for the town to have a kite museum. While it costs $5, I think it's worth it, especially if you've never really taken a close look at kiting....More

We took the Grandchildren and they loved it. Interesting kites to see and make. A lot of history also.

This museum is very large and has a lot of information! There are even stations to make your own small kite and to try your hand at origami. It's very cool to see some of the giant kites suspended along the ceiling.

Nice museum with the history of kites (who knew the military relied so much on kites!). We also made our own and promptly went to the beach to fly them!

If you're a kite enthusiast, then this might be of value to you. Some of the kites were interesting, but $4 each with our senior discount didn't seem like it was worth it. We were in and out in about 15 minutes.

Small museum of kites and kite history. Nothing fancy but amazing kite art. Kite enthusiasts will like this place. Some kids may not enjoy if they are more into video games. However if your kids are into museums and reading they will learn a lot...More
