The Nixon Presidential Library changes up their venue on a regular basis. From the Centennial to the Baseball Exhibit during baseball season with another special area exhibit remembering the 40th anniversary of Nixon's passing, there is always something new. Celebrities abound at the evening speech and book signings. Each Sunday afternoon is a free concert in the theater. The concerts... More

There it is warts and all as we look at the term of a president who stepped down in shame. The library has changed somewhat since it went from strictly private oversight to public support. They have many nights when speakers from the various groups come to share.

We were planning to drive by Yorba Linda and we had been to the Ronald Reagan Library so we decided to come here. The tour was very good and the docent (Ray Harris) knew a lot about the subject. There is good coverage of Nixon's life and good artifacts from his presidency. There was a lot to Nixon's Presidency -... More

There are many assumptions about this man that are challenged at the library. Watergate is not glossed over and you can make up your own mind about that. But what is interesting is his story, and if you take the time to visit you will be rewarded with a glimpse into his life. There are beautiful gardens, pleasant and peaceful... More

Visited the Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA. It is amazing how many details of this time in history that a person has forgotten about. Fabulous place to visit. Very educationally presented. Spent the better part of the day here. Highly recommend

A great presidential library tucked away in Orange County. The library is a museum for tourist while also serving as a records archive. The grounds are stunning and the reflecting pool is a nice touch. A Marine helicopter is on site and available for a tour. The house that the president was born in and lived in is on the... More
