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.

I understand that the cost might keep you away however this is not to be missed. Get involed with the history of the world from a kite's perspective. Make a kite. See the art. Watch the videos. Imagine yourself there with the kites. Great exhibit.

A cute place featuring a great amount of history about kites. The staff seemed to really enjoy working there. Not too expensive if you are looking to get out of the wind for a bit.

we spent an afternoon going through this museum! It was cool to see how kites were used in world wars and how they are used around the world and how they have changed.

It has two floors, accessible by elevator, and a few rooms with kites from different places and times, but principally the attraction is Japanese kites. There is a video of kites used in WWII, and a place where you can make your own small kite...More
