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

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.

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...More
