Enjoyed the history and presentation of material. There was a traveling Madeline Albright broach exhibit that was a lot of fun. Touring the homestead and helicopter was fun! Docents were very knowledgeable and friendly!

Great museum, you have to go if you are in the LA area. See the house where President Nixon was born and pay your respects at his memorial just yards away. Truly humbling to stand in the small mail-order house where a President was born.

A well-done museum that currently features a collections of pins worn by former Secretary of State Madeline Albright, and how she made political statements with each. The Nixon birthplace and Marine ! are also part of the museum. A nice exhibit on Watergate is included. If you plan to go to other Presidential Museums you may want to consider a... More

Absolutely enjoyed my visit to the Nixon Library. It was a comprehensive, honest look at his life and the life of his family. I'm amazed that they library is on the land where Nixon was born and that he is buried right next to where he entered the world. The gardens are beautiful. The house is decorated impeccably. Kudos to... More

The Madeline Albright pin collection was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all those pins she wore while Secretary of State. I had no idea. All else was very enjoyable and positive. I learned quite a few things I never knew. Next time we go I will bring a jacket. Was very cold inside. Go prepared for a chill.

See his helicopter, office, vehicles and view his history good and grim. seniors for 2 is $17.00 and... More

Really nice museum. Includes the Nixon home, where he was born and gravesite. It also included the former President's helicopter. Well worth the visit.

Much love and admiration goes out to the volunteers & staff. They were eager to help, assist & take photos; they were enthusiastic about giving a tour of Nixon's house; and happy to... More

Very illuminating. Can easily spend 2-4 hours looking at all the Museum items on display. Favorites were the original house that Richard Nixon was born in; the helicopter; Madam Albright's broach collection and what her broaches signified to other dignitaries! Highlights of course included the resting places of the First Lady and Mr Nixon; Apollo 11 astronaut suit and seeing... More
