This was a highlight of our trip. Absolutely beautiful grounds and scenery. Well laid out museum starting from his birth to death. It was fun to see Air Force One and board it. The docents were very informative of the various items in the museum. Humbling to go see and stand in front of Ron & Nancy's gravesite.

We definitely recommend this library to anyone. There seemed to be plenty of staff to assist visitors. Even the food at the cafe was good, we tried the chili and a brownie.

I cannot tell you what a great experience we had visiting the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. It was thrilling to follow the amazing life of Ronald Reagan from his childhood through to his death. It is a gorgeous setting. The staff was delightful. Among highlights there was a beautiful piece of the Berlin Wall, clothing worn by Nancy and Ronald... More

Currently Vatican Splendors is showing at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum and is well worth a trek to this extensive museum that sprawls across 100,000 square feet. Key moments in Pres. Reagan's life are captured in photos, objects, and videos, such as his PR work promoting GE and the assassination attempt. The oval office is replicated in the... More

I live close by so go regularly to enjoy RR library. Ronald Reagan offers varied special events. The Reagans are buried outside but part of the library. Also of course there is always a display of Ronald Reagan's;time as President. The only complaint I ever heard was by a couple, friends, who travelled all over USA to see Presidents Libraries:...

The library is on top of a hill with a 360 degree view over the valley. Late morning is the best time to arrive as the sun has burned off morning fog. In the building, you walk from exhibit to exhibit. You'll see everything from his shoes to his limo to Air force One. The trip is well worth going,... More

Went with friends and did not know what to expect. I was very surprised and enjoyed it very much! We spent nearly three hours and could have spent more time. I remembered some of his history and presidency but there was so much I had forgotten. The library brought back the interesting history of the man and the events happening... More

I wasn't all that interested in going to the Reagan Library despite my interest in history because I had never been to a presidential library and thought they were mainly research venues. My husband wanted to go .What a surprise... First surprise was the mob scene there on a weekday in July. We were coming from San Diego and left... More

I have visited several presidential libraries and this one is impressive. Interesting, interactive displays. Numerous audio-visual options. Treasures of the Vatican special exhibit this summer is also amazing. Plan to spend 3 to 5 hours to enjoy the full experience.

I wouldn't change a thing. What a first class museum and experience. The history and artifacts are top notch. We arrived one hour after opening and already the main parking lot was full. How uplifting to see people of all ages and nationalities enjoying his enduring messages. Air Force One is on display, too, and may be toured. Restrooms and... More
