The 324th Rifle Division was a Soviet infantry division of the Red Army during World War II. On 6.04.1945 it was part of the 69th Rifle Corps of the 50th Army.

On 6 April 1945 the 324th Rifle Division was one of the divisions in the encirclement around Königsberg (the Battle of Königsberg), located at the northwest sector. The division to the right was the 110th Rifle Division, and to the left is unknown. They attacked German positions and broke through the second defense line.

Feskov et al. lists it as part of the short-lived Gorki Military District in 1945-6, where it was apparently disbanded by September 1945.
