The best part about this museum is the variety of kites they have assembled. They have gigantic ones strung up above your head and along the walls, and tiny kites in glass displays. They had video stations set up throughout the museum to learn more,...More

There weren't a ton of kites there from other countries but there was enough to make a stop if you like kites. The lady that was working there was wonderful and it was a beautiful town.

This is a small, very specialized museum with a lot of interesting kites. The make-your-own-kite was fun for my kids (6 & 7) the rest was a little dry for them. The kites on display were very cool, but they are out where they are...More

The museum was good to see all the different kind of kites, the fee is okay, but not the cost. Learned about the different kinds of kites. Wished they would have edited better some of the videos that they showed about kites.

This museum is great in that it has a lot to look at and a depth of international kite history/tradition. They even had a hands on demonstration in the lower level.

Japanese, Indonesian, World War II, paper, silk, huge, tiny -- who'd a thunk kites had such fascinating history. Well worth the admission charge.
