A Great experience!

The museum is just fantastic. One day is not enough to consume it all. My next trip I intend to take the biplane ride. Kermit Weeks did a wonderful job. It is a must see if you... read more

After seeing all of the photos and friends of mine talking about how great this museum was, I was excited that they were reopening the museum, even as a scaled down version, just so I could get some pictures of the planes. That's about all you can do, take pictures of some of the planes. They are packed into the... More

I can't give you a female perspective because we didn't get to go with the guys. I can tell you the 13 year old and his dad really enjoyed it. I know they'll be going back again the next chance they have. The part of the facility I saw was very clean and neat. The receptionist was very nice.

Due to remodeling the museum is much smaller now and only open weekends while the design/construction is taking place. There are still many interesting planes, etc. The Kermit Weeks collection is going to be awesome when Fantasy of Flight Act 3 is ready.

After a week of Disney, I'd been looking forward to a bit of me time. Turned up at 2:45pm to find I had 15 mins until it closed. Just my luck!. however, the Staff could not have been more accommodating. They let my son and I have a look around the museum and then out to the apron to look... More

The museum is now open again on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Great displays with beautifully restored vintage aircraft. The highlight for me was the flight in the 1929 New Standard D-25 biplane!! The husband and wife who operate the aircraft are wonderful people who go out of their way to make your experience special. We flew over Ringling Brothers winter... More

The museum was closed. An attraction on the top of my husband's list. So sad he had to miss out. Don't bother driving there.

Saw the advertising on I4 and online It's a private venue... Not sure how someone can just have an advertised business and be closed but what a waste... Don't bother even driving by....
