After a beautiful ride on the PCH from Los Angeles, we arrived at the Reagan Library. Nestled in Simi Valley, this memorial is absolutely beautiful ! There is the anticipated historical aspect but what sets this library apart is the beauty of its setting! The library itself is immaculate! Every space is beautifully maintained which makes visitors feel respected and... More

Do not miss this! The permanent exhibit is absolutely wonderful. The Airforce One Exhibit is absolutely awesome!!!!!!! The temporary exhibits are usually very good. And, you get to pay tribute to the final resting place of the best U.S. President of my lifetime!

I've never been here when it hasn't been crowded--been there when it has been MOBBED even--and if it is really packed you'll have to park a long way down the hill, that will really detract from your visit. But what a great place! Film clips and movies full of interesting info about Ronald Reagan that you'll really have to see... More

Our visit was wonderful. There are so many good memories of Ronald Reagan. We enjoyed seeing Air Force One. It was an enjoyable day.

Wow what a surprise.. We arrived at 11am on Sunday (rainy) and there were very few people. Even then we spent 5 hours looking and listening to all the things that happened in RR's life. I had just finished 3 book of Ken Follett "Edge of Eternity" which was around what went on in the 60-80's and it was such... More

Excellent museum full of interesting exhibits, memorabilia and film clips. The museum houses a well furnished Air Force One that we were able to tour as well as Marine One. There were interactive exhibits for old and young to enjoy. When we visited there was also a collection of antique cars from the Pederson Auto Museum. The setting and grounds... More

try to go when it's a clear day, you can see all the way to the ocean and the channel islands to the west and the San Gabriela mountains to the east. if it's snowed in the local mountains the better. Reagan was the best president , he accomplished some pretty great things. every time I go I learn more... More

Drove from South OC... 3 hours each way. So we were only able to spend 3 hours at the library before we had to head back home. Wish we could have stayed longer, but traffic just wouldn't allow it. This certainly a place worth visiting. The location itself is beautiful overlooking the canyons and hills. It was great getting to... More

No doubt Reagan was one of the most influential president in the world. The library is pack with history describing that. From his family history, his teen and college years, his early career, how he met Nancy, and eventually become president. Full with pictures and his actual belongings. The Berlin wall section is interesting and remind us why he was... More
