Very interesting attraction, spent more time than I actually had anticipated. Lots of history, modern touch-screen exhibits, very experienced docents. One of the exhibits is a full size Oval Office replica, got a chance to sit behind the president's desk when no-one else was there....More

Impressive leader. Watergate overshadowed many of his significant contributions. Nuclear armament limitation, opening China, middle east, a Stabley Shing the EPA, establishing OSHA, and the list goes on. Recommend visiting. Parking is free.
