Fantasy of Flight
- Polk City, FL
Imagination becomes reality at this aviation-themed interactive museum conceived by aviation legend Kermit Weeks, which tells the colorful story of aviation in the 20th century. Guests journey through time using a combination of flight simulation, historic aircraft, battle replication, and hands-on displays.
As opposed to simply displaying this amazing collection of aircraft on their own, The McBride Company wanted to immerse the museum visitors in an experience of the scenarios in which these aircraft were actually used. We created detailed dioramas where visitors actually ‘walk through’ the experience.
Historical artifacts related to the experience were displayed ‘up close and personal’ and allowed the museum visitors to actually interact with certain items instead of displaying them in the typical ‘roped off’ fashion.
