The New England Air Museum (NEAM) is an aerospace museum located at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Connecticut, U.S.A.. The museum consists of three display hangars and has additional storage-only hangars. It houses 66 aircraft, 26 helicopters, a variety of missiles, ejection seats, and other pieces of flight-related equipment. The museum also conducts tours, children's activities, and hosts special events.

Exhibits include the history of Sikorsky Aircraft, computer-based flight simulators, and the 58th Bombardment Wing Memorial's B-29. Additionally, there are exhibits on early French aviation, the Tuskegee Airmen, the Kosciuszko Squadron, and the 57th Fighter Group.

The museum library has books, periodicals, technical manuals and National Air and Space Museum photographs. Additional materials such as photographs, microfilm and movies are cataloged by the Museum.

The museum also restores aircraft on a regular basis, including a Lockheed 10 Electra, a Boeing B-29 Superfortress, and a Gee Bee Model R.

The museum is also home to FlightSimCon, an annual flight simulation conference, held every June.
