“Nixon Presidential Library”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a great historical representation of Nixon's term in office. There are many interesting artifacts and memorabelia from the Nixon era. There is also a Marine 1 helicopter on display that you can tour. The home in which President Nixon was born is on available for tour. This is also the resting place of both President Nixon and his wife Pat. There is currently a special exhibit of Pat Nixon memorabelia.

This is worth a visit.

“Beautiful and Informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Spent over three hours going through the Nixon Library and Museum. It was very informative and well organized. There were items there to keep the interest from the youngest to the oldest. Especially appreciated seeing his homeplace and the Air Force 1 Helicopter. Time well spent!

“Nixon Library and Museum Historically Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Beautiful landscaping and fountains. Historically interesting in all facets of that time period. Lovely rose gardens. Birthplace is well presented both in the original home place and in the miniature re- creation of the home place. The presidential helicopter was interesting to walk through as well. I enjoyed the temporary exhibit about the First Lady, too. The explanation of the Watergate Affair was well presented with no holds barred. Parking was excellent, and the Library was easy to find.
