As another reviewer noted it is a creepy that you have to provide personal information in order to enter. I've decided to give it a go and it was interesting and staff were nice.

Wonderful insights into the personal side of President and Nancy Reagan. Take the tour with the Docent to learn more details. Park in pay lot in front of the Center you get 75 minutes free and $1.50 for the next hour.

The Docents are amazing - they add so much to the visit. Yet the artifacts and information about Regan's Ranch nearby was simply fascinating...I had no idea that the Regan's Ranch was just a small 2 bedroom very modest old home on 600 acres.

Hard to find but well worth it. Park in the attendent parking lot. Spent 1 hour, guides are there to answer talk about the displays.

enjoy a little bit of history walking through this center. comfortable seating in the lobby for small kids to sit and relax if needed. A little disappointing that I heard the host offering others free DVD's upon leaving but did not offer to us :-(

Reagan Ranch centere is meant to provide information about Ronald Reagan and his ranch. You can watch 30 mins film and will find it very interesting. Can go there along with friends and family
