A Must See When You Visit Santa Barbara California!
Aug 2020 • Friends
ALL AMERICAN....thats what came to mind when I visited The Reagan Ranch and Young American Center in the beautiful travel and destination city of Santa Barbara California recently.
Dedicated to the life,times and service of The 40th President of The United States of America,Ronald Wilson Reagan!
The experience at The Reagan Ranch and Young Americans Center was terrific and in the center is a vast historical collection of memoribilia from President Reagans and wife,Nancy Reagans, life-such as pictures,speeches,books,his ranch Jeep vehicle and an actual historical section of the"Mr Gorbachev Tear Down this Wall" Berlin Wall that was one of President Reagan's greatest accomplishments-the start of the dismantling the former oppresive Soviet Union and the formerly known USSR communist regime.
One the most famous US Presidents in history,Ronald Reagan was a true heroes,patriot and believer in The USA and democracy.
This is a must see in Santa Barbara or in addition to seeing the world famous-Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley,California.There is plenty of free parking and lots to see and learn about our country,its values,and President Ronald Reagan's life as a great American and a contributor to what truly makes The USA and its democracy the great country that it is .

We had a short time to stop in, and wished that we would have had more time. Our guide/host was very informative and helpful. We just wished they opened earlier in the day.

We had an interesting time with a private guided tour of the museum. We learned a lot about the ranch and it's location. I found it informative as well as interesting. The movie, lisgeninng to speeches took about 2 hours.

A Personal look at the Reagan Ranch
Sep 2019
I found a brochure for this library at my hotel in Northern California
We were planning a trip to Simi Valley to visit Reagan Presidential Library so decided to stop here on our way. We’re very happy we did. The docents are so well versed on the Reagan’s life and adventures at the Ranch. They provided so much history of the property and the improvements the Reagans made to the property
Beautiful photos and Reagan memorabilia.
The museum is free and you get 75 minutes of free parking. We spent a couple hours looking at exhibits and talking with the docents.

Wonderful place to see - a lot of information
Jul 2019
My friend, Barbara & I had this Tour scheduled for one of our stops from Portland, Or. along the PCH to Santa Barbara. Then we were to turn in our rental car the next day and fly home to Houston. Wonderful things were here to see and the personnel and guides were awesome. I would recommend you stop here and take it all in. Great Tour!

Yound America's Foundation has provided a priceless opportunity to learn about President Reagan in a high-quality format, which provides the opportunity to learn about his personal life and character. If you get the chance to visit the Reagan Ranch, don't miss it!

Skip if you are short on time.

This is not a must see. Focused on Reagan's ranch which is near Santa Barbara. If you like Reagan ( I do), than worth the time. Otherwise, visit the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. No fee for this Center.

New information
Jan 2019
We have been to the Reagan Library, and this small museum gives some interesting information and stories that you don't find elsewhere, along with a lot of information about Pres. Reagan's life at the ranch. We were especially touched by the Secret Service agent's story who worked with the Pres. for many years. Great perspective.
