Plan Your Visit

Welcome to Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park.

The Visitor Education Center offers educational and interactive exhibits that cater to visitors of all ages. Visitors can learn about this important time in history and how it impacted daily life. Since its establishment in 2000, this national park has dedicated itself to preserving the history of World War II on the home front.

Park staff collaborate with local partners, including the City of Richmond and Contra Costa County, to preserve and protect historic World War II resources in Richmond. Some historic sites are open to visitors, while others are preserved for future restoration.

Before visiting any of the park's sites, start your journey at the Visitor Education Center first, where you can explore our films, learn about local history, and grab a map that will lead you on an unforgettable historic journey through the city of Richmond, California.
