There's something for everyone. Friendly and personable hosts, and atmosphere. I've been many times, and each time I find something different. Visit the museum and birthplace- you won't regret it!

Wonderful historical site in a small town. Plan about an hour. Small museum has tons of neat Reagan artifacts, and the guided tour of the birthplace was amazing. Tour guide was extremely helpful. Highly recommended!!

A very touching and loving re-creation of the humble home in which Ronald Reagan was born...we visited with a couple of Democratic friends and even they were impressed with the trip into the 19th Century town life...highly recommended!
