Take Highway 580 to Point Richmond, exit at Canal St. and head south. Continue on Canal Street for about 2 miles until you come to Gate #2 (a security checkpoint for the large parking area full of newly imported cars from Asia). Just before this checkpoint you bear to the right and follow the road around the car lot, out toward the water to Berth 6A. The red arrows on the map below will help give you an idea of how to proceed here.
NOTE: PLEASE KEEP YOUR SPEED TO 5 MPH once you veer to the right at Gate #2. There's lots of heavy industrial equipment operating in this part of the Port.
If you need further directions call the ship, (510)237-2933 or the Richmond Museum of History, (510)235-7387.
Hours of Operation vary with the season.
