  • We visited on a day when they were celebrating Rosie the Riveter, live band, cooking breakfast in the ships galley, eating on the deck in brilliant sunshine and a fantastic view of the bay and San Francisco. Docents explaining the history and functions of the ship. It was a great experience. The ship is a treasure and part of history touching on women's rights and the rights of blacks and other minorities. Worth seeing.
  • Started a bit rocky with the sign-in desk being upset that we had bought the tickets online as part of the Rosie the Riveter event.. aside from that the tour was nice... it will be incredible when the restoration is complete. Great walk back in time. Recommend pay on site and sneakers.
  • Cool spot to check out if you love WW2 history or want to learn about bay area roots.
  • My visit to the Red Oak Victory brought back memories from my time in the US Navy. I served aboard two modified Victory ships, four years at sea. This ship is priceless, I hope it continues to be maintained for future visitors. If anyone wants to see a bit of history from WWII then you must visit this ship! I hope to see her again one of these days! Also, about the review from Tracy Lim: She's an idiot and has no clue what this ship represents. It's not a "tourist attraction"!!!
  • Okay, not stellar. The signs indicate it is part of the NPS, but they don't honor any NPS pass. There is a $10 fee for each person (no children, senior, student, etc rates) and it is cash only. When we visited, there were four employees/volunteers at the entrance and all they wanted to do was talk amongst themselves. They didn't offer any assistance the entire time we were aboard. It was nice to see an actual Liberty Ship, but they could easily make it more enjoyable if they provided more information, pictures, personal stories, and videos. To me, it felt like they are wasting a golden opportunity.
