Nylander Museum displaying kites

CARIBOU — On display through the end of June at the Nylander Museum is “Colorful Kite Tales,” a poster exhibition from the Smithsonian traveling exhibition service and a collection of kites from China, lent by Airborne Kites.

While the kites are designed on a natural history theme, they encompass a wide variety in size and content. The size of the kites ranges from a butterfly kite 2 by 4 inches to a 35-foot dragon kite, with eyes that wiggle.

The Nylander Museum is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. On weekends, museum staff and volunteers will offer free kite-building workshops for children. Visitors may learn how to make kites from lunch bags, grocery bags and garbage bags. Kite safety will be stressed.

For more information, call the museum.
