This was an unexpected pleasure. Some have complained about the need to provide “personal information”. It requires name address and email address if you have one. Can’t see why that would put you off visiting. The staff were incredibly helpful , informative and friendly. It...More

As another reviewer noted it is a creepy that you have to provide personal information in order to enter. I've decided to give it a go and it was interesting and staff were nice.

My husband and I found this really interesting, probably because its a time that we lived through ourself so it brought back many memories. Its very well done and the film is well worth watching.

Wonderful insights into the personal side of President and Nancy Reagan. Take the tour with the Docent to learn more details. Park in pay lot in front of the Center you get 75 minutes free and $1.50 for the next hour.

The Docents are amazing - they add so much to the visit. Yet the artifacts and information about Regan's Ranch nearby was simply fascinating...I had no idea that the Regan's Ranch was just a small 2 bedroom very modest old home on 600 acres.

Hard to find but well worth it. Park in the attendent parking lot. Spent 1 hour, guides are there to answer talk about the displays.
