The Royal Air Force Air Defence Radar Museum is a museum that can be found on the grounds of the former radar and control base of the Royal Air Force known as RAF Neatishead. This base is located in Norfolk, England, close to the community of Horning.

The displays in this museum provide an overview of the history of air defence in the United Kingdom, focusing on the evolution of radar from the 1930s up until the end of the Cold War. There are numerous examples of the original radar and communication equipment, as well as an exhibit of a Royal Observer Corps Nuclear Reporting Post, all of which can be found in the museum. Additionally, the museum features a fully functional Operations Room from the time period of the Cold War, from which the air defence of Britain was managed for a number of decades. In addition, there is a gallery that recounts the history of the nearby Royal Air Force Coltishall.

The majority of the Museum’s employees are volunteers, many of whom have previous experience working in the RAF.
