AAA Editor Notes

Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park visitor center is at 1414 Harbour Way South; from I-80 eastbound, merge onto I-580 West after the Gilman St. off ramp, take the Harbour Way South exit, turn right onto Cutting Blvd., then turn right onto Harbour Way South and continue for .8 mi. to the secured parking area for the Ford Assembly Building, where a security guard will direct you to visitor parking. The park commemorates the City of Richmond's significant role in the nation's World War II home front effort; 747 cargo vessels were built in the four shipyards run by the Kaiser Company. Exhibits and films in the Visitor Education Center tell the human stories behind a massive war effort that impacted the daily lives of many people. One mile from the visitor center along the SF Bay Trail in Marina Bay Park is the Rosie the Riveter Memorial, a public art sculpture the length of a World War II Liberty cargo ship.
Free.
Hours: Park open daily dawn-dusk. Visitor Education Center daily 10-5. Center closed Jan. 1, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
