The entire P‑38 Museum project was accomplished with volunteer man hours and volunteer dollars — what an extraordinary accomplishment!

The P‑38 Museum is appropriately housed in an airplane hangar, adjacent to March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, CA. You can’t really miss our sign on the East side of I‑215 near March ARB in Southern California.

Our museum is dedicated to Chief Test Pilot, Tony LeVier, who flew over 200 different types of aircraft, declaring the P‑38 to be his favorite!  Read more about Tony LeVier.

In the beginning…

After the P‑38 National Association was founded in May of 1987, one of it’s proudest accomplishments was building the Museum, which is supported on contributions of memorabilia and donations from the public and our Association Members.

Construction on the Museum began in the late 80’s and was supervised with perfection by P‑38 pilot, and former Association President, Dick Willsie.  Have a look at the early construction photos of the Museum, and see what it looks like today!

Museum Remodel!

Our P-38 Museum is well over 20 years old, and was past due for a facelift. But, actually, we did much more than that. Our P-38 Museum has been completely remodeled.  It has taken us nearly eight months to complete the job and tens of thousands of dollars.

That’s where you can help. Since we do not receive any funding from the USAF, Lockheed or the March Field Air Museum,  your help really counts with us! Make Your Remodel Donation here. If you’re ever in the area, please stop by and check it out!

Learn more about our Exhibits, our Monument, our many exceptional Dioramas, and Sculptures.

Important Notice

Although we are housed on the grounds of the March Air Museum, the P‑38 Association’s Museum is a separate and independent non-profit organization.

We are not affiliated with the USAF or Lockheed, and our entire operation is supported solely by people like you. See how you can help us with our mission!

Non-Profit StatusThe P-38 National Assn is a 501(c)(19) non-profit, tax–exempt veteran’s organization.

Docents

Each Docent volunteers their time at the Museum to answer questions and act as “hosts” to our visitors. All Docent Duty is coordinated with great dedication by Scott Frederick. 

If you have a passion for the P‑38 and a few hours to spare, we sure could use your help. We offer free training, so if your spirit is willing, let us know.
