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....

This place is actually really interesting, even if like myself you were dragged round by a bunch of men who prefer to stare at engines and comment at length about torque or something?? I actually had a great fun time here, not as much fun as the men had, but still very interesting all the same. We also paid for... More

We went to Fantasy of Flight for the PSP Paintball World Cup. We did not go into the museum at all. But the location was great and the venue was really nice. They handled parking as best as they could. We only had to park in the overflow parking(big pasture about a mile down the road) one day. They did... More

My experience with FOF started my junior year of high school 1998 what an awesome summer job! I learned so much about WWI and II aircraft. For me having the privilege of listening to veterans of those wars were amazing. I'll never forget a gentleman who came in and had seen a corsair for the first time since the war... More

We have visited this attraction a number of times when driving through central Florida. 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)....
