Have visited the Ronald Reagan library several times. Last trip from Boston was to specifically visit the library. The grounds, memorabilia, events from the past revisited, and the original Air Force One (B707) are fantastic. Easily found in Simi Valley and well worth the trip if in the area. Be sure to pick up some of President Reagan jelly beans!... More

We returned for the third time this year - we really enjoy the displays! The Christmas Tree exhibit was excellent - lots of information on the series of "letters".

My very first impression of our 40th Presidents home and retreat, on top of a hill over looking The Simi Valley,was awe inspiring. And just a beautiful way to show to all who visit just how much Ronald Reagan loved The United States and all of it's greatness and how it inspired him to lead and guide ALL Americans &... More

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum is situated in a beautiful part of California and the views alone are enough of a reason to go there. The museum is broken up into different events, which is a nice way to absorb all that is presented there. There are a variety of automobiles, some of which I would have loved... More

We are both big fans of President Regan and his Library doesn't disappoint. The location atop a hill in Simi Valley is spectacular. The library does an excellent job of walking you through his life from the time he was a child. Plan on spending a few hours. The staff are very knowledgeable and can answer most questions. We joined... More

The RR Library and Museum is located in a beautiful part of Simi Valley. The displays and car and Air Force 1 exhibits are definitely worth seeing. You will need 2-3 hours at this attraction. A gift shop and Café are located at the end of your tour.

How fun to see the Bat Mobile and the Bat Motor Cycle. They have so many cars from different movies and famous people. I totally enjoyed the entire place. We... More

Even if you aren't a big Reagan fan, the breathtaking views and gardens are worth the trip. If you are a Reagan fan, this is a must visit place! The gardens really are beautiful and the views of the surrounding valleys, magnificent. The rose garden, actual portion of the Berlin Wall, and the monument are amazing. Inside, there is enough...

The Museum offers experiences that everyone will enjoy as they either revisit a period of their own life or are educated not only about a man and an era but also American freedom. Besides the normal biographical information and the opportunity to listen to classic Reagan speeches, the museum allows you to participate in activities such as crawling through the... More

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum is a beautiful facility with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands on a clear day. The museum itself is a wonderful tribute to Ronald Reagan and his legacy as a world leader. Food at the Reagan Cafe is also very good and reasonably priced. Lastly, there is so much... More
