You shouldn't miss any Presidential Library, here you get a feel for how normal Nixon early life was.

This was my first visit to a presidential museum and library but I was really surprise from the information that I got from this visit. We all know Richard Nixon as the president who resigned in disgrace but there is more to the man than what we knew. Coming in, one is greeted by the tranquility of the lobby. Everyone... More

This very well covers Nixon's life. I thought , though, they gave a little too much deference to his involvement in Watergate and also some of the failed domestic policies he pursued ( e.g. price controls). The President and his wife are both buried here and his boyhood home is on the grounds. The staff was very friendly.

My husband and I went to the Nixon Library last Saturday. It is a beautiful property with the library and research in one building and then a walk through the garden to his birth home and burial site of he and his beloved. A little walk further and you'll find the historical helicopter that he flew away from the White... More

Democrat or Republican, this library is worth the trip. Our docent (tour guide) Vic was terrific. He was eloquent, friendly, knowledgeable and patient. The hour and a half tour covered Nixon's years from his college time to his resignation. And yes, they explore the Watergate scandal. They highlight all the good things he did, especially improving our relationship with China... More

I was very surprised by this presidential library as my family has visited many. I was curious as to how they would address the Watergate scandal and was pleased to discover that they were very honest about it and addressed it in great detail. The movie theater with the video was being remodeled but they had it playing in another... More

Finally went to see. I can remember a lot of what I saw but was educated into a lot of things that President Nixon did. Great history lesson. Fantastic grounds and pool. The tour takes you from the early days to the last and covers it well. The original birth place house is on the grounds and tours are given.... More

When down in Southern California to visit Disneyland, we like to spend a couple of days doing "something different" that isn't theme park related. This year, we decided to visit the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and it was well worth the visit. My children range in age from 17 down to 11. From the time we arrived until we left,... More

A spur of the moment decision and there we were, at the almost deserted Nixon Library. A terrific trip back in time - good times and bad times. The museum holds lots of interesting artifacts, such as campaign buttons and posters, TIME magazine covers, Marine One helicopter, and Nixon's birhplace, still in the same spot as a hundred years ago.
