It was right after a random lunch date with our aunt and uncle when they decided to bring us to the Nixon Museum. I was not actually familiar with American history but our visit to the Nixon museum educated me a lot about the life of Richard Nixon. I was impressed at how they managed to preserve the actual old... More

Objective depiction of an underrated president. Do an excellent job showing that Nixon did much good in the White House, and some bad. Treats the Watergate scandal well, putting out information and allowing the visitor to decide for themselves. Does not hide Nixon's flaws, but you may be taken aback by the wisdom and intellect of this man. Worked hard... More

The museum helps to show that Nixon did do a lot of great things for America as a president. He was human and made a mistake. He thought best for the good of the country. I would recommend seeing the Nixon Library and Museum before going to the Reagan Library in Simi Valley,

A very well done renovation! The exhibits are extremely interesting and provide an excellent insight into President Nixon. Marine One was closed because of the weather but we had been through the house on an earlier trip. The museum is fascinating and worth an afternoon visit.

This is an excellent museum to visit, especially if you lived as an adult through the 60's and 70's. It covers Vietnam under Nixon and pulls no punches about Watergate - I had forgotten how many illegal actions preceded Watergate. It gave a good balance to a very complicated man. It has just been updated and renovated and it is... More

We were very lucky,we visited this marvelous location,by chance on the 104th anniversary of Nixon's birth.There was a special celebratory ceremony with speeches and a navy brass ensemble from San Diego playing appropriate favourites. On arrival you are greeted by a magnificent huge wall painting of the president and a huge depiction of the presidential seal on the floor of... More

The Nixon Library has just been remodeled. Eye-catching displays and modern technology are put to good use in helping visitors explore the life and times of our controversial 37th President. From Watergate to Vietnam, the museum fairly presents material that in the past was not adequately addressed. One highlight is the replica oval office - where you are allowed to... More

I had no great love for Nixon but after visiting the Reagan Library thought we would check it out. I was impressed, I learned more than expected. The presentation before walking through the museum was very balanced. It told the good, bad, and ugly about Nixon.

I can't say I was a Nixon fan at the end, but this library, an honest portrayal of the man, his family and his time was so much better the I anticipated, its a great library, well done, educational, balanced, in a perfectly beautiful setting, it was a worthwhile day day for us and I hope anyone who is close...

My husband and I are Presidential library junkies, having visited 7 of the 13, so far. The Nixon library does a very good job of presenting a balanced view of, probably, one of the most complex presidents, in terms of Nixon's psyche. As you may expect, you will learn about all his foreign and domestic accomplishments, that are often overshadowed... More
