This Memorial Library was sited around Richard Nixon's birthplace and is also his burial place, alongside Pat. You are introduced to his life with a 30mins film, with some remarkable facts that may well change your opinion about him as a politician and his impact on the World. The actual museum is amazing, with smartly-dressed staff who take time out... More

This attraction is well set up & run by friendly staff. Really does a great job of informing visitors about Nixon's life and rise to the presidency. It is very honest about Nixon's highs and lows. Great pictures and original pieces of history. Tour of Nixon's actual house on the grounds that he was born on was very informative.

We visited on Sunday, August 31, 2014. We parked right in front of the entrance. This is a lovely setting with the libray and museum as well as his birthplace house. This was our 8th presidential library and museum to visit. This is a fine example of the story of Mr. Nixon from a very humble childhood to president. The... More

Friends living In the Yorba Linda area encouraged us to visit the Presidential Library. This huge museum traces Nixon's steps in his life including Watergate in photographs, artifacts. The photos are breathtaking. I was particularly taken by a large series of pen and ink drawings of Nixon's career which were penned by an admirer. I could have easily spent a... More

i truly enjoyed the visit to the Library. It was very detailed in the events during the years President Nixon was in office. There was a very good supply of memorabilia and the hosts and guides were very pleasant; All being said I feel that touring the Library and Museum is well worth the time and small expense.

President Nixon was the one who opened up the global marketplace and was responsible for a great realtionship with China, and it is all reflected in the Library. Excellent place for education!

This was my first visit to a presidential library/museum, and I really enjoyed it. I arrived just after opening on a Saturday, and had a good hour to walk around before I noticed a significant number of people. One of the docents noted that the crowd was light for a Saturday … not sure if this was because of the... More

It was fantastic. I have learned so much about this President. This Museum has done an excellent job presenting Nixon's accomplishments and his down fall. The Watergate exhibit is extremely detailed and leaves you with lots of thought. If you love history of our US presidents, this is a must to see.

I am presidential library fan of all presidents. With that being said I learned a great amount about President Nixon outside of watergate and the things he succeed at. Nixon was a fascinating man and his story seemly could only have happen in America. A former Marine one was on site to tour, as well as, his boy home. The... More
