In addition, the museum has added a few modern kites to show museum visitors what is available today. On display are commercially available kites and kites from Jim's and Marty's collections.
To help with the opening, Marty Groet, Jim Martin and his son James, were on hand to answer questions about kiting, the AKA, the WACKOS and to help with paper airplane making. The image below is the entry to the 2nd floor gallery housing the exhibit. Farther down the page are a couple more pictures to pique your interest. You really should visit the museum and see this exhibit.
