Located in the old Ford assembly line buildings on the Pier in Richmond, the museum provides insights into the war period and the many women and men who made their way to California to help with the war effort. The personnel is friendly and knowledgeable.

There is a 96 year old park ranger who tells her story folllowing the film. Her story is the highlight. It takes about an hour. I just hope they will get it recorded. It is a treasure that should not be lost.

This museum is on the bay in a seedy area with warehouses. They do have a parking lot and we felt safe parking and walking to the building. Two rangers welcomed us, told us about the film schedule...there are two short films shown regularly that...More
