The City of Norwich Aviation Museum is a volunteer run museum and charitable trust dedicated to the preservation of the aviation history of the county of Norfolk, England. The museum is located on the northern edge of Norwich International Airport and is reached by road through the village of Horsham St. Faith.

The museum is open daily except Mondays during the summer months and on Wednesdays, some Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through the winter. A small charge is made for admission. An extra charge is made for tours of the Nimrod and Vulcan aircraft (subject to volunteer numbers). The museum offers yearly membership as well as single entrance tickets.

The museum will be skirted by the proposed Northern Distributor Road; aircraft were positioned elsewhere to accommodate this, although no museum space was lost.
