In June 2019, my fam and I visited the San Diego Air & Space Museum.  Here are the pictures I took. We were invited by its Chairman, Terry Brennan, to view also the basement workshops and vaults. They hope to find a donor for a P-40 Kittyhawk.

 

Please enjoy firstly  a smattering of museum including the Flying Tigers AVG section photos taken by my daughter:

Thanks for posting all of the great photos - especially the basement, which I've never had the honor to visit. I remember going the museum with my dad when it was in the Electrical Building before the fire in '78. My parents were fixtures in the San Diego flying community from the late 1940s thru the late 1990s when my dad passed away.
