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

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)....

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.

I have to be honest, I have not a bad word to say about the fantasy of flight museum based on previous experience. 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
