I love the view, we visited during the Baseball Exhibit and enjoyed it very much. There really is nothing to dislike, the cafe is fun, sitting outdoors and drinking in the iew and food, fabulous.

My husband and I made a recent trip for the first time. I thought we would spend a couple of hours but ended up spending the whole day. It was very educational and inspiring. The setting and grounds were absolutely beautiful and the gift shop was great.

This is a must see in the southern California area. After all, there are only a limited number of presidential libraries, so to have the chance to walk through such history is something no one should miss. Put the Republican and Democrat tendencies to rest for a few hours and take a stroll through the life a great leader.

Having been to six of the thirteen Presidential Libraries, I have to say that the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library is the best I've visited. The Harry Truman Presidential Library is my second favorite. The Library is on the top of a hill with gorgeous views of the surrounding area. There is usually a pleasant breeze. The grounds are very well... More

This is one Presidential Library that needs to be seen. From the beautiful landscape, the interior of the buildings, to all of the presentations. Well worth the price of admission. The attendants throughout the museum were knowledgeable. They helped guide you through the museum. I was especially impressed with Air Force One and the way they installed the plane into... More

This place is a freakin' palace. They spent $120M (2012 adjusted) building it, and it really shows. Amazing memorial to a great presidency. I could have spent all day, but my 9-year-old's interest was only good for about 2 hours. Still, a satisfying visit. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Loved the Oval Office recreation. I have been to... More

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library experience as beyond my expectations. The grounds on top of the mountain are beautifully done. The Buildings, and history contained are more about the true history of events that took place during President Reagan's run up to the election, and the amazing things he accomplished during his 8 years in office. The Air Force One... More

This museum is very well put together... so much to look at and read, plenty of interactive displays, short movies, and Airforce 1, too. Plus the view of the surrounding mountains is beautiful. A great way to spend a day! Due to additional travel plans, we had budgeted only a couple hours here...once we started walking through the exhibits, we... More

Parking can be full but they have a shuttle. Not to worry even if handicapped. Very good food is available with an exciting two story view of CAlifornia mountains. The reading of history can be as long or short as you have time. You can get your picture taken boarding Air Force One and Marine One. they are available for... More
