Fantasy of Flight might be small, but it's an awesome "museum" to visit if you're in the area of Polk City. It's not exactly a museum, but rather a hanger filled with aircraft. From I-4, there is a big sign that advertises the business but there's also a cool old-fashioned plane that sits on the property for people in passing cars to see a sample of the items that are housed here. The aviation hangar holds a collection of vintage aircraft from a variety of eras, starting with the early 1900s when flying was just starting to take off to World War I and World War II as well as a select few machines from the 1950s.

The hangar can hold up to 25 airplanes at any given time, although they are often switched out with others for regular maintenance and cleaning. There's also a little gift shop to check out for those who would like to have their own little aviation memorabilia. If you're a big fan of flying contraptions and would love to see a little bit history right in front of you, this is a great place to check out as a summer time activity! They do have a limited time schedule in which they are open, so it's recommended to check out their calendar to pick a day that works best for you. Regular business hours are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm from June to July and November to April.
