Once a Facebook page is deleted, it's gone forever. However, you may be able to view a cached or archived version of the page using either a search engine or the Internet's Wayback Machine, an online webpage archiving service. Search engines generally keep cached copies of pages for a limited time, so you may have trouble viewing a Facebook fan page that's been deleted for a while.
