This was my first visit to any Presidential Library. I used to think that such places were probably a waste of money (private money since taxpayer money is not used). However, this visit certainly left me inspired as an American, and I found that its interactive exhibits serve as a great educational tool for our children. Besides the incredibly beautiful... More

Finally got to go to this museum, and boy was it worth the drive! The drive itself was very scenic, it's situated in a picturesque and serene valley; very beautiful. The museum has everything about Mr. Reagan; from his childhood day to his acting career to his presidency. A very detailed chronicle of a very great man. Air force One... More

There is enough history at this presidental library to keep you busy all day. From the history of Ronald Reagan's years as Governor, then President to AirForce 1, Disney history, etc... You can grab a lunch or snack there also. It is located in the west end of Simi Valley, on Madera Road.

The Reagan Library is by far one of the best in the country! It is well designed, filled with a great balance of who he was and how he lead our country. It really makes one feel proud to be an American, regardless of party affiliation. I wish current politicians would remember his legacy and practice it today. Plan on... More

This is one the coolest history museums I have been to. My wife and I were staying in Agoura Hills and saw the Reagan Library was fairly close so decided to visit. We ended up spending most of the day up there. The setting of the library center on top of this mountain was incredible. Everything was so well laid... More

I was not a huge fan going in I went because someone told me that if I was in the area I had to stop in. Honestly it was amazing. The thousands of historical items that were saved and displayed is mind boggling. College assignments, notes from world leaders, articles of clothing. Hours will pass like minutes. Don't be surprised... More

This is an absolutely perfectly run museum, and well worth multiple visits, even for someone like me who would never consider voting for a republican. You learn a lot about Reagan himself, and about the world he lived in. The museum is very logically organized, and is both an educational and an entertaining experience. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning,... More

Driving up to the Presidential Library you begin to get a sense of why President Reagan was such an amazing individual. The library structure and grounds tastefully blend with the surrounding landscape avoiding any appearance of a "monument" to the president.Parking is easy and plentiful. Once inside you begin a most amazing tour . There is nothing I can add... More
