Visitors are picked up in NPS vehicles that are equipped with wheelchair lifts, and driven to and from the memorial. The park film is shown in the John Muir NHS visitor center. The memorial grounds are level and wheelchair accessible. There is seating provided at the memorial grounds. A park wheelchair is available on request.
Visitors have park wayside exhibits, park handouts, and the park website for information about the park. Rangers are able to modulate their voice during tours, and a sign language interpreter is available from the NPS, with enough notice before the tour. Our park films volume can be adjusted. At this time (11/14) the park film is not closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial is dedicated to providing a rich experience for all visitors, and we are happy to offer sign language interpretation for public programs upon request. Because we do not have a sign language interpreter on staff, please contact the park with your request at least two weeks in advance of your visit, or when you’re making your tour reservation.
Park wayside exhibits are in large fonts for easy reading. The memorial grounds are level and clear of obstructions. The memorial itself has names etched in granite which are easily touched to determine the name. Braille Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial booklets are available, but not large print Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial Unigrids (NPS standard brochures).
