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

Walked in front door, small gift shop over priced, must pay to enter "museum" .. very small, unimpressive. Don't waste your time on this place.

When we arrived we were treated by a friendly staff lady who explained the museum and then we were allowed to explore its contents. The kids enjoyed the short films as did the adults very interesting! Then we explored the creature kites and... More

Great place for both kids and adults. All kinds of kites large and miniature. Some great videos of kite competitions from around the world. The display of WW2 kites and their role in the war effort was very interesting.

If you have even the faintest interest in kites, this would be a place to go and see. Though I saw kites from different parts of the world, the ones that interested me the most were the kites used in World War II. An admission charge is required, so don't think it is free like the other museums in Long... More

Very run down inside. The most interesting part was the WWII kites and what they did during the war with these.
