Last year we stayed locally in Lakeland so that we could visit Fantasy of Flight on our way through to the gulf coast, hoping to see a rare example of one of the last flying Mosquito,s in existence.(missed it! they had moved it when we arrived)....

We saw in the paper that it would be closing down for about two years to remodel and expand.Had a great time and even got to talk to Kermit. He has an vision about flight and the resources to build it the way he wants to present it. Will be looking to visit again in about two years.

We have visited this attraction once before in 2008 and were absolutely blown away, spent almost the entire day thee and loved every single minute of it. Being one half of an aircraft enthusiast this place is... More

Spent the day at this delightful attraction viewing the vintage airplanes, Mustang of Mustangs and air show. Even though the sun was scorching with no breeze, the staff from parking cars, trolley drivers, food servers and general assistance were very pleasant, helpful and professional. We are sorry to learn this attraction will be closed to the general public soon and... More

My family had a great time at this museum. We entered our car in the Mustang car show held at this airfield and our 4 and 5 year old were entertained by the aircraft museum for more than 6 hours. Getting to see so many aircraft in one place, even if your not "in the know" is very interesting. Restaurant... More

This was a great day out with lots to see, lots to do, interesting shows a really interesting history. The walk through the years and actually going into a war aircraft to experience how small these conditions were. Wonderful flying aircraft great restaurant and shop at reasonable prices. Hope it re opens in the future.
