Long Beach has its Annual Kite Festival August 15-21. It's a fun event, with the sky full of colorful kites. Long Beach is windy, so be prepared with jackets, etc. The museum is right on the road to the beach, so after finishing here, you...More

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....More

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...More

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...More
