Love it! Amazing place if you are an aviation enthusiast like me. They have a nice collection of old planes (all propellers, no jets) and most of them are in working order. The staff is very helpful and they will go out of their way to explain anything you ask. Go there, is a great experience!

We loved the unique collection of planes that had been restored - WWII and older - restored to flight condition. The staff provided excellent history, stories and explanation of the planes on display. As a bonus, that was a bi-plane available for flights the day we attended. It was a blast!

We drove 45 miles out of our way to go there during there published open hours to the public and they were closed. Very disappointing as this was at the top of the hubby's list of stuff he wanted to see. Not to mention we were pulling a 31' RV behind us as well!

Recently there was a book signing by LT Colonel Richard Lewis.He was a WWII pilot and recounts his experiences. It was very nice getting to speak to him in person and listen to the stories. It is so much more real to hear it in person. I hope they will have more events soon.

from a 1911 Curtis to a incredible beautiful P51 Mustang, fantasy of flight museum has a small but worth visiting airplane collection.

There are some fascinating aircraft in the single hangar which is currently open. Some date back to the dawn of flight, and it's possible to see their under-skin construction which is enough to convince me of the bravery of early aviators! There are several unusual and record-breaking aircraft, but for me the two top aircraft were the P51 Mustang, which... 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

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 are in Orlando. DON'T MISS IT!
