When Richard Nixon is mentioned, the first that comes to mind is the watergate scandal. But you get to see the other important aspects of his life and the key decisons he made during his tenure.

My husband and I have lived in Orange County for almost twenty years and had never visited this famous museum and library. We had some business in Yorba Linda in the early afternoon and a dinner in the early evening, so we searched for something to occupy our time in the area in the interim. There isn’t much, but there... More

We arrived at The Richard Nixon Library & Museum at 10:40. It opened at 11:00 on Sunday. Tickets cost $16 per person. We finished at 1:00. We watched the movie and then visited the museum. It was really good and nice. However, I didn't like how the information wasn't all in chronological order. Nixon's presidency was first and then his... More

The Richard Nixon Presidential Library re-opened in October of last year after a complete renovation. It is very user-friendly and pulls no punches about the former president's controversial life and political career. With many interactive features and installations, the walk around the library which includes a replica of the Oval Office can be done in an hour or so if... More

I've been to a few Presidential Libraries and this one is very good although not as grand as Regan or JFK. Its very accessible in Yorba Linda if you are visiting Anaheim/Disney. Takes about an hour to walk through, but you could spend even longer if you read all of the exhibits.

The Nixon Library has recently been refurbished and is beautiful. The grounds are lovely, and the library is full of great memories of Richard Nixon, both good and bad. I think after a trip through the library you will have a greater appreciation for this man in spite of his self destructive nature or your politics. Certainly a worthwhile visit.... More

After an extensive remodel and update of all galleries and displays, this Library and Museum is definitely worth a visit. Gives you a good look back at Nixons career and history of the time. The grounds, his home and the helicopter add to the value of this visit.

I was very pleasantly surprised. It has lots of history and so neat to see the home he was born in with all original furniture. Also got to take pictures of my son siting at the Oval Office. So that was neat. Learned things that he done that no one ever talks about.

As a Yorba LInda resident and someone interested in presidential history, I visited the library a few times in the past. I'd seen it all there and had no intention of returning until I heard about the $15mm renovation. It's excellent--almost "Smithsonian" quality and very up to date with its own tour app. Great video and other interactive displays, worth... More
