Did you know that the World Kite Museum & Hall of Fame in Washington State is the ONLY museum in the United States that is dedicated exclusively to the history of kites, kitemakers and famous kite fliers?
It also happens to be the location of the Washington State International Kite Festival. How cool is that?
If you are a family that loves kites, this might just be the ideal place for you!
Within the museum you will find a number of exhibits that will really immerse you in the world of kites!
You can explore an exhibit of kite stamps from countries all around the globe, or you might want to check out the exhibit that describes one of the first kite manufacturers from back in 1927. (Did you know before that you needed to just make it yourself, or know someone who could?)
The museum features an exhibit on Dime Store Kites, those popular paper and plastic kites from the 1920s to the 1960s, as well as kites within WWII, AND kites that could take aerial photography. Have you ever seen kite aerial photos of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake?
There is SO much history to the kite that you might not have ever imagined!
So let's all fly a kite, up to the highest highs, on that family day out in Washington State.
It's an experience that will make you SOAR!
