They have the reel-to-reel tape player that wound up missing the 18 minutes of recordings. They even offer their grounds for weddings if that is your kind of thing. It's just mostly cheesy by a bunch of fans who are rapidly aging.

For the history buff, this is a very good place to visit. It chronicles his political life very well. It even has a section that discusses Watergate. Apparently, it did not have this section originally. It can easily get passed by on the street that it is on. The signs are not that obvious pointing to it.

I had visited the Nixon Museum in 2007, while it was interesting then, large parts of Nixon's history were missing, i.e. Watergate. Its like Clinton excluding Monica, or Bush Katrina. However I can now say it is more comprehensive as the Watergate portion has been expanded and includes an in depth look into the events that took place from all... More

The exhibits were very interesting, the grounds lovely and the helicopter a highlight. We purchased our lunch at the local pie shop and brought it to the grounds for a picnic. The library is well kept and the exhibits were very interesting. Anyone who enjoys history --- whether Republican or Democrat--- will enjoy the exhibits.

This was the birthplace of President Nixon. They have a Museum, reflection pond, and flower garden. The home was built 112 years ago, along beside it is a tree that they planted at the same time and it still stands today. It was very interesting and full of information.

The collection and period of history represented by the Nixon Library is fascinating and well displayed. The Nixon family house by itself makes this a unique library and gives some insight to the Nixon persona. Hands down a great place to visit while on vacation or visiting Southern California.

I really enjoyed myself! The employees were very nice and had a lot of knowledge about everything including Richard Nixon's house when I took a tour. It was like going back in time. There is his flyer also that was great to walk through. There was so much information I feel I would need to go back just to absorb... More

I am already planning a return visit, although the museum is laid out so that you can spend as little or as much time as you like exploring. Nixon's childhood home and helicopter were chained off for events or other tour groups and the wing on Watergate deserves more of my time. There is such a plethora of information and... More
