Explore More with the NPS App
In addition to your first stop at the Rosie the Riveter Visitor Education Center, we have created various self-guided audio and GPS-based tours that are provided through the official NPS App. These tours are your guide to history and learning outside of the visitor center and in the city of Richmond.
There are a number of historic sites and places of interest around Richmond that are part of the WWII Home Front story. Since the park is not currently offering shuttle tours to these areas, we wanted to provide a way for visitors to explore and learn on their own.
Features of the Self-Guided Tours
Installing the App and Finding the Park
1. Download the free app from one of these links:
2. Find A Park - Launch the app, once installed. If it is your first time installing the app, you will need to swipe through some intro screens before seeing the "Find A Park" button. When you click on that button, type in "Rosie" in the search bar at the top, in order to pull up the full name listing for our park. Select it.
Navigating Our Self-Guided Tours
These tours are designed to work with your smart phone's speakers and navigation app. Some of the tours contain walking but most have driving components. If your vehicle is equipped with the technology, the app can play the audio on your vehicle's speakers and help you to navigate through your vehicle's GPS navigation system. Not all stops need use of your navigation app.
