I left with a new respect for Ronald Reagan.

The library is beautiful and educational. I left with a new respect for Ronald Reagan. The Air force one exhibit was really interesting

I didn't allow enough time and I regret it. There is so much to see. If you are at an age where many of the events talked about in the displays took place, it really comes alive. Even the Christmas trees display was fascinating and that didn't have anything to do with Ronald Reagan. I know that things will affect... More

I don't often go to Presidential Libraries but when I do it's the Reagan. It's in a gorgeous setting at the West end of Simi Valley. The views are wonderful. The exhibits are fantastic and the opportunity to board AF1 was crazy fun. It was also neat to touch a piece of what separated E/W Germany for so many years.... More

I took my kids there 15 and 17 years old. It is a great tribute to one of our Greatest Presidents Ronald Reagan. To see and walk thru Air Force 1 and get a sense of history that this is where a lot of historical decisions were probably made that changed the world for the better is an awesome place... More

Easy to get to from L.A. Plenty of parking. Get there early, and plan to spend 4-5 hours with all the guide information and static displays. Be sure to rent the audio devices - you get your money back. President Reagan's history is incredible and the library/museum tells a great story for him and his life. The staff is very... More

The facility is first class. Wonderful exhibits of activity during his presidency. Most moving was perhaps the suit he was wearing when he was shot. Great Berlin Wall exhibit. Of course Air Force One and Marine One were awesome. Nice folks working there made it even more pleasant. Only issue is if it was built with tax dollars why do... More

This is an amazing experience! First, the location. Sitting on top of a hill, the view is breathtaking! When it's clear, you can see all the way to the Pacific Ocean. We had a bit of a hazy day, but I was still in awe. The tour is well-laid out and starts with the President's grandparents coming to America, his... More

It was truly an amazing museum and worth the travel to get there. The best part is seeing a replica of the Oval Office and the old air force one.

Visited the Reagan Library during a promotion for hoteliers in the area. They set us up to see everything the Museum had to offer. From Air Force One to the car exhibit they had at the time, we had a great time. I have referred every guest that is looking for something to do in the area, to the Reagan... More
