So very well done! What an absolutely beautiful setting to begin with! The views are spectacular! We went on a Tuesday after Spring Break and it was the perfect time to go. It was nice to be able to view the displays without having to jostle around a lot of people. The interactive displays were really well done and everything... More

Spent about 3 hours at the Reagan library. The museum gives a very good understanding of how he got into acting, moved into union activities, then went into politics. Curiously, it makes absolutely no mention of his first wife or any of his kids. There are many film clips of Reagan making some of his famous speeches, and some of... More

This place is amazing. It is accessible to everyone, and most ages will really enjoy a few hours here. The dining options were great-sandwiches and coffee and soft drinks at modest prices. THe museum itself was modern, and clean restrooms added to our pleasure. WE found ample parking, and this was well worth the time .

My wife and I toured the museum while in town for a wedding. It is an absolutely incredible experience. The setting is unbelievable. The exhibits are quite moving. Walking through air force one is quite fascinating. Would not miss it if you're in the area.

My wife and I live in Simi Valley and have visited the Reagan Library and Museum several times. Always a great tour that reminds and educates about a very good President and his time. One drawback is that President Reagan's personal religious faith is not specified, even though it helped him persevere through the assassination attempt and other crises. The... More

I have visited most of the presidential libraries. The most fascinating aspect is how they treat a former president's flaws and mistakes. FDR's library has a small exhibit on Lucy Mercer; Nixon's library begins with his resignation speech. Clinton's library addresses the Monica Lewinsky scandal head on. Visiting this musuem, you would think Reagan had a 100% approval rating throughout... More

My wife and I on a last minute whim before leaving southern California thought we would stop to see the library. Incredibly informative, beautiful, and very moving at times. The displays of Air Force One and Marine One were both awesome in their own right. Really worth taking a couple hours here and enjoying the beautiful grounds.

The Reagan Library and Museum is a truly wonderful memorial to the former President. The museum is very well planned and steadily transitions through Reagan's life. There are exhibits for when he was in school, early career, Governor, and President. There is a replica of the Oval Office that is exactly the same size as the one at the White... More

My husband and I were visiting LA and made the drive out to the library - very worth the side trip. Grounds are beautiful and the exhibits are interesting. Only minor complaint is a bit of the "sales pitch" given when you first walk thru the doors to promote buying a annual pass. A little much in the first couple... More

The library is very well laid out and has a lot of interesting exhibits. We had tickets for 10:00 when it opened and there was already a line to get inside. We walked past all the exhibits and went straight to Air Force One...best idea because we were the only ones there! It would be miserable trying to see inside... More
