2013 - After five years on Pelee Island, we are in the process of moving the museum to the mainland here in the London, Ontario area.
With our family’s recent move to London, we have bold new plans to find a much larger location, and incorporating technology to take advantage of smart phones, the Internet and global conferencing.
Our plans are to officially open in 2014, to allow us the appropriate time to finalize a location, construct new displays, work out the technology, and many, many details which go into such a volunteer undertaking.
Some of the theme displays we will be working on are:
Ray “Good Stuff” Bethell - Be Inspired!
Dime Store Diamonds - Paper Kites of North America
Kites of the world
The Amazing Asia Kites
Kites to Flight
The Kite Library
Pictures, Photos, Prints, Postage, Pins and Post Cards Gallery
The Politics of Kiting
Kites of War
League of Legends
The Bells of Baddeck
Sí Southern Americas
Kite Academy - Mathematics, science, weather, culture, art, crafts, reading, writing, geography, history,
Hook and bullet kiting
Stayed tuned and please “pardon our mess” as they say as we build on five success years as Canada’s only kite museum and prepare for many more.
If you would like to participate in the development of one of these exhibits, to host one or to help sponsor one, please drop us a line at email@example.com.

The mission of the museum is to:
* Celebrate the wind
* Encourage cultural, environmental and family activities
* Develop opportunities for people with challenges to fly
... simply stated - to share joy.
