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.

Description

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!

Would you recommend RICHMOND MUSEUM ASSN INC?

by Nepunnee B. (July 22, 2020)
I really wanted to volunteer for my local community and attempted multiple times for this museum over a couple of years. Not sure if COVID abruptly stopped the correspondence and feedback cycle on the work I was doing for them, but it's been months now and I haven't heard back from either of the 2 contacts I had there. Overall, they don't seem very organized or serious about volunteer coordination as I submitted interest on the volunteer roles described, didn't hear back for years, then when someone finally did reach out, they wanted me to do something completely different.
