Welcome to the World Kite Museum!

The World Kite Museum & Hall of Fame is the only American Museum dedicated exclusively to the thrill, joy, art, science and world history of kites.

Besides its outstanding kite collections, the Museum has extensive archival materials. The American Kite Association [AKA] has combined their archives with the World Kite Museum in Long Beach, Washington. An active oral history program exists on cassettes and videos.  Textbook companies and freelance writers are the biggest users.  Long Beach’s World Kite Museum is the definitive information source on kites internationally.

A Washington State vacation is incomplete without a visit to the Long Beach Peninsula, home of the Washington State International Kite Festival, and the World Kite Museum and Hall of Fame.  Located at 303 Sid Snyder Drive SW, Long Beach, Washington, WKM is the only Kite Museum in North and South America.

We look forward to seeing you in person. In the meanwhile, we hope you’ll enjoy perusing our site!
