World Kite Museum & Hall-Fame

   Long Beach with miles of sand and a constant ocean breeze is the perfect place to fly a kite. Every August thousands of people flock to the town for the Washington State International Kite Festival. It’s a week-long event with contests, kite battles and mass ascensions. If you can’t make it to the festival at least stop at the museum to watch some of the videos and view the exhibits.

   

The museum is accessible.

  RVs will fit in the lot if parked across the spaces. Street parking is also available.

Museum    46.34576, -124.05769

  1. We visited this museum last summer! Even bought a tee-shirt! Wasn't it a fun place to explore, so colorful. Unfortunately, we were a week late (or was it early?) for the festival. Be we enjoyed it anyway. Here's ours:

    1. I'm glad that the Chinese kite exhibit was still there when we visited. The kites are beautiful.
      It looks like the weather wasn't any warmer for your visit than it was for ours. So strange to have jackets on at the beach in the middle of the summer!
