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.
