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. Also, for a short (around 15 minute) interpretive walk of the kite festival art work,...

Was never aware that so much culture was involved with kites. They have so much meaning around the world. Had some very cool kites on display, but could be boring to some. Was worth the visit and enlightening, do not see the need to ever go back

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 of interesting things about the history of kites.

The kite museum has moved a couple of times over the years and this is really their best location thus far. Many people complain of the charge, but buildings and utilities have to be paid for and it's hard to do on donations. Bite the bullet, pay the admission, it's not overwhelming. The history of the kites are well presented,... More

We came to Long Beach to fly a new Gomberg kite so what kind of trip would that be without a museum visit. We found it very informative. Liked the military and rokku displays. Sadly the weekend seems to be filled with rain. Good reason to come back during the kite festival.

Had a great time, will go back. The small admission is worth it but because of the reading involved little children will most likely just enjoy the gift shop with all the kites. But the history end of things, with videos would be great for older children. Make your own kite is great for say 7 yr and up but... More
