  • 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.
  • GREAT WWII HISTORY!!! I was a Richmond resident and a R.U.H.S. Oiler as a young man and was thrilled to no end when I learned this remarkable history about Richmond. It's been 41 years since I left the Bay Area and returned for a tour at Christmas 2016. We were touring Pt. Richmond when our wanderings lead us to the Kaiser Ship-Building Docks of WWII on Canal Blvd. The volunteers and staff of Red Oak Victory are simply wonderful. They were extremely helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed their information and insights about the ship. The ONLY one left of the 747 ships built at Richmond, this is a very special part of WWII history. We sooo appreciated our tour and the fabulous way we were treated. It's a self guided tour so you can take your time and visit where you want for as long as you want. The only thing I would like to mention is PLEASE ramp up your marketing efforts so more people can enjoy this monument. There are many many WWII buffs that would love to visit this historic sight. Keep up the great work you are doing to restore her. Kudos. Thank You!!!
  • Fun experience very nice people aboard would go again recommend this as a high school field trip
  • The place is not great for young children. I will not visit it again. I like the USS Hornet Museum. If you have ever visited USS Hornet Museum before, you will feel that Red Oak Victory is not as good as USS Hornet.
