All of the Presidential libraries are absolutely fascinating glimpses into history during each Presidents term. I highly recommend you see any you can. This one, of course, heavily focuses on the Watergate scandal, but also the opening up of China, The Vietnam War, The Cold War, Middle East events and more. There is a fascinating display of gifts given to... More

Wonderful presidential library and museum-must see! Very informative about Nixon's life, not just his presidency and Watergate. Movie presentation at the beginning was very helpful and it was easy to follow the exhibits throughout the place. It was great to be reminded of his many accomplishments and loved the history refresher. Beautiful garden to walk through and it was fun... More

Being too you guys to remember Nixon this was a great stop. First get the head phone for the audio tour (they were not offered when we bought our tickets) 12.00 for seniors and 16.00 for adults this includes everything. All the history from birth to death is here. Inside the main portion gave the history with the audio. Then... More

Really well done. At first I felt lost since there was no map nor floor plan. Walking through provided good guidance, however there was no mention of the docent guided tours of the family home and Marine One. I felt the museum should have focused more on many of his accomplishments instead of Watergate. Watergate belongs there, but it overshadowed... More

We were part of a bus tour at the library in February and have now been to all thirteen Presidential Libraries. This library stands out as one of the most enjoyable and instructive. We really appreciated the honest and complete presentation of Richard Nixon's life. It goes a long way in correcting the bias that is so easy to have.... More

We were in CA for the Rose Parade and drove up to the Nixon Library. It was really beautiful, informative, and enjoyable. Easy to find, ample parking, clean grounds. We were impressed with the library and how it covered so much of Richard Nixon's life good and bad. I didn't expect to see the childhood home or the presidential helicopter.... More

Visited yesterday and really enjoyed all the exhibits. The Library recently reopened after a year-long renovation with new exhibits and a modern look. They now have lunch service provided by a locally, we'll known restaurant, Stefano's with a comfortable sitting area. I highly recommend this stop on your travels to Orange County.

First of all, the setting is lovely with flowers in bloom and citrus tress covered with fruit. Then, you follow the life and times of Richard Nixon. Can you determine how much of his complex life was based on his childhood? Well, give it try. Knowledge gives you great understanding even if not forgiveness. For those of us who lived... More

Nixon was not as popular as Ronald Reagan but it is worth stopping at his library while in the L.A. area. About 50 miles across town from Simi Valley. We did not encounter the crowds or bus loads of school kids. It seems that Nixon was not as memorable as the other presidents but the educational value is still worth... More
