I visited this museum because they had plenty of artifacts of Abraham Lincoln over a year ago. I drove from Beverly Hills, where I live to Simi Valley to see this. Being a liberal, I almost cringed at the thought of having to visit one of the worst presidents in United States' history's library, who Republicans seem to worship and... More

If you have a day free when you're in L.A. I would highly recommend visiting the Reagan library out in Simi Valley. It's a little bit of a drive so you will need a car (there's plenty of free parking at the library) but I think it's worth it. You'll definitely need at least 5-6 hours to see everything (depending... More

The Ronald Reagan Presidential LIbrary and Museum is a tremendous experience. It took us almost five hours to read through all the displays, view the various videos and tour Air Force One! Plan on being there most of the day to partake of the full experience. Because of the time it takes, it can be a challenge for smaller children,... More

By far, this is a must-see for every American! Plan to feel at home and stay for at least a few hours -- shamelessly look at every inch of the place. It's a history lesson on our country, a fine citizen and public servant, the Presidency, the Secret Service, Air Force One and Marine One, the Cold War, and freedom... More

We enjoyed a spur of the moment visit here whilst coming to Moorpark for the annual California Cup field hockey tournament. The museum is inspiring and interesting. The Air Force One visit was amazing. Feeling very patriotic after this visit!

This Library and museum stands apart from all others. It has the Air Force One exhibit along with a huge array of interesting items from one of our most interesting presidents. I highly recommend taking a day to explore this amazing library and museum atop a beautiful hill.

The museum at the Reagan library is truly fascinating. You can spend time learning about the Reagan years in the White House to include a replica of what the Oval Office looked like during his terms. Also, you can walk through the actual Air Force One aircraft and the Marine One helicopter. The location and view is great and they... More

Love the exhibits. I especially enjoyed the Lincoln exhibit. Very enjoyable, friendly staff, nice gift shop. I would like to try the restaurant on my next visit.
