One shouldn't expect a presidential museum to be anything other than a monument to the president in question. Although I didn't like Reagan being the first president of my adult life, I felt the museum did a very good job of documenting events and bringing them new life for those who weren't there.

Didn't a lot about this president or even the white house. Such an amazing tour. Didn't get to see everything. So many memorable experiences. Seeing a replica of the oval office, being able to board Air Force One, touching a piece of the Berlin Wall, feeling a piece of steel from the World Trade Towers after 9/11. Wow! Incredible. This...

My 4th visit to the library. Always an incredible experience. Being able to go through Air Force One and see where the president sat and worked is a truly memorable experience. I recommend getting the libraries membership so you can visit other libraries as well.

Never visited a presidential library before, but I can't imagine any can top this one. Absolutely a must-see. Gorgeous views of the valley below it l, and well laid out and informative exhibits. We stayed 4 hours and didn't read or see everything! The Air Force One exhibit was especially cool. Can't recommend this place highly enough! It is not... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Reagan Library even tho I'm not one of his political supporters. The Air Force One is absolutely amazing as is the Oval Office. Other highlights are the Berlin Wall, Marine One, and the Grave Site. Food is available in restaurant/snack bar. Our tour group had a catered lunch which was very good. Gift Shop... More

Make sure you have at least 4-5 hours to spend there is so many things to see. Lots of history. Loved being able to actually see and tour the Air Force 1. Lots of paintings. And to see the Oval Office how it looked when he was there and the care they took to make it so real was fantastic.... More

Having been to a number of presidential libraries took the the chance to go to Ronald Regan's library in Simi Valley California. The setting is stunning with amazing views across the valley. The library is very well laid out with lots of material provided in a clear and logical pattern. Regan's warmth, personal charm and wit and the strong support... More
