SS Red Oak Victory

Love to engage people and share history? Come join us as a docent aboard the SS Red Oak Victory!

The SS Red Oak Victory ship in conjunction with the Richmond History Museum, shares the origin stories of how the Kaiser Shipyards were created, the experiences of the crews that manned and operated the ship's 35+ year history at sea during WWII, the Vietnam, and Korean Wars, and the "Rosies" who built the ship and their legacies.

Looking for engaging and informative volunteers to bring our history to life through docent tour led interaction on and below deck. Great way to learn local history, connect with our community, and meet people from all over. All training provided. College credit and internships available through this program. No experience necessary, but historical interpreting, Navy, Mariner, or any other relevant experience a plus.

If you want to know more about any of our volunteer opportunities, please contact me via email at:

We look forward to meeting you!

Mission Statement

The mission of the Richmond Museum Association is to preserve, display and educate about the history of Richmond, California and the surrounding area.


The Richmond Musuem Association (RMA) operates the Richmond Museum of History, located in a historic Carnegie Library. The Museum is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from 1-4PM for a small admission fee. The largest artifact in the museum collection is the SS Red Oak Victory, a Victory Ship built in 1944 for use in the Pacific Theatre in World War II. The ship is open for docent lead and self guided tours on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 10-3.

The Richmond Museum Association (RMA) offers volunteer opportunities for people of all walks of life. Our community of like-minded volunteers works toward a common goal to inspire people through Richmond history. RMA will make you feel welcome whether you seek to develop professional skills, deepen your own personal interests or just want to feel more connected to the past. The Museum and SS Red Oak Victory depend on volunteers with a wide range of skills so we can accomplish goals like operating the ship under her own power or ensuring every local student visits the Museum once during elementary school. We offer a wide range of positions to fit diverse skill sets including everything from greeting guests to education to ship restoration and everything in between. Volunteering is fun and fulfilling, leading to health benefits and enhanced quality of life, so join us today!
