Unfortunately, when we went to Fantasy of Flight, we were informed (after admission had been paid), that the majority of aircraft and attractions were all being housed in other hangers -hangers that we would not have access to- all because Fantasy of Flight was all but closed down due to them currently working on plans (with Disney no-less) to turn...

I won't lie - my husband is the aviation enthusiast in our family. So, when he said he wanted to check out Fantasy of Flight, I agreed (albeit a bit begrudgingly). However, after visiting, I can honestly say I have a newfound respect and appreciation for aviation. FoF is very easy to find. The parking lot is grass except for... More

Having visited this collection some 9 years ago and been seriously impressed by the variety of the exhibits, even knowing it had down-sized since, this was still a big disappointment. Yes, there are some rare/interesting exhibits, but everything is packed so closely together it is almost impossible to appreciate what you are viewing and photography of individual aircraft very difficult....

Excellent collection and the exhibits are first class. So much to see unlike the Florida air museum. They were open Friday, Saturday and Sundays from 11 to 3.

Billed as having the 'greatest aircraft collection in the world' - nothing could be further from the truth. I believe this museum has been forced to downsize resulting in a small collection of aircraft, some of which are reproductions. The exhibits are packed very tightly together and it's difficult to obtain a good view of any of them. On the... More

The facility has downsized but planning a big expansion in next couple years. They have hired Universal Studios designers to expand into a real attraction. Small number of planes to view but the tour is still very interesting and price is reduced to reflect the down sizing until the new construction is finished.

Good collection of Golden Age race planes. Great tour guides. The downer was the biplane rides. We waited ten minutes at signup desk before clerk acknowledged us. They advertise 15- and 30- minute flights. When the three of us showed up for out scheduled flight, we were told that clerk had "goofed" and that an hour-long flight was scheduled for... More

Although a smaller exhibit than the previous incarnation of Fantasy of Flight, it is nonetheless well worth a visit. One large hangar crammed full of interesting exhibits and regular tours with knowledgeable staff as part of the experience. Also a few planes parked outside to view.
