It was a little out of our way but we love to explore airplane museums. The museum had three open hangers with planes to see and explore. There was an outside exhibit but due to the weather we were not allowed outside. They have a flight simulation area and a kids area. My favorite part was looking at the two planes they were restoring. It was available for us to see.

The New England Air Museum has gone thru many changes in it's history. They came about as, it was originally an out door museum. In 1979 the landscape of Bradley International Airport and the air museum were decimated by an F3 Tornado, many aircraft were damaged beyond repair. This prompted the building of an indoor museum, it too has gone thru changes. My actual visit was back in 1998 as of now it must have gone thru a total metamophisis as a family attraction or for avaition buffs this is worth the fare.

I really enjoyed checking out the old planes here. A great place to bring your kids to show them how aviation evolved.

it was a nice 20 minute excursion, but not anything I would write home about or be upset I did not see while in the area. Nice distraction but not impressive

Thanks for visiting the New England Air Museum! As the 10th largest air museum in the country, I'm not sure "small" is the best description of us(!), but perhaps you did not have an ample opportunity to see our more than 80 aircraft and related artifacts. We hope you'll give us another visit sometime soon.
