The Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial

The Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial was dedicated in 1994 to those who died in the Port Chicago disaster.   It also highlights the critical role played by Port Chicago, California during World War II. The memorial is located at the Concord Naval Weapons Station near Concord.

The 1944 Port Chicago disaster occurred at the naval magazine and resulted in the largest domestic loss of life during World War II.  320 sailors and civilians were killed on July 17, 1944, when the ships they were loading with ammunition and bombs exploded. The explosion and its aftermath led to the largest Naval mutiny in US history.  The mutiny and its subsequent trial became major catalysts for the United States Navy to desegregate following the end of World War II.

Visiting the Memorial

The guided tour begins in a  park shuttle at the John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez, California. A ranger will provide background information about the Port Chicago disaster. Being at the memorial allows you to view the dedication memorials that provide the names and information about this historic event.

Museum Collections

The museum and archive collections include remnants from the explosion, historic photographs, relevant documents, artifacts, and oral histories. These items are critical in understanding the events that took place at the Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial. The collection links many stories through educational programs, research opportunities, and both virtual and onsite/offsite exhibition. The museum and archives are available to the public through exhibitions, web exhibits, and research.
