The permanent museum galleries at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library...

The permanent museum galleries at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum are currently undergoing a major $15 million renovation.

Due to the renovation, admission to the Nixon Library is half priced.

Tour Richard Nixon's Original Birthplace

Walk through Richard Nixon's original 1910's humble farmhouse birthplace - in the same location where RN's father built it over 100 years ago - with its original furnishings. Experience life in rural Yorba Linda just as RN did.

Climb Aboard Marine One

The glimmering presidential helicopter that took Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford to all corners of the globe. A rare glimpse into history unlike any other!

The Katherine B. Loker Center and White House East Room

The Nixon Library features an exact replica of the White House East Room, the largest room in the Executive Mansion. We invite you to join the millions of guests who have experienced its beauty and timeless elegance.

This library gives a good overview of Nixon's presidency. It includes the good and the bad moments. His boyhood home is also located on the property along with his grave. Go early and take your time going through the exhibits.

As a youngster during the Watergate scandal in the early 70s, most of the news one heard of Nixon was very negative. However, through reading and a visit to this beautiful library and museum, one can really learn about Nixon's tremendous contributions to history. The grounds are wonderfully maintained, and walking through the actual home (and location) of his birth... More

The museum was under renovation when I saw it. They reduced the admission price to just $6 because most things are closed. It was definitely worth this admission price. The movie is good, about thirty minutes in length. Make sure you see the grave site, the rose garden, walk in his birthplace with a guide, and visit the presidential helicopter... More

Time taken to tour this library will be a good use of your time. The helicopter Nixon flew out on is here. This is where Nixon and his wife are buried. His boyhood home is here.

On a spur of the moment, I decided to head over to the Presidential Library and Museum. What a wonderful surprise! I spoke with some of the docents there, learned a lot about President Nixon through the docents, as well as through the film they invite you to watch. President Nixon was quite the man's man, as well as an... More

The roses were also lining the path to the gravesite of president Nixon and First lady Pat Nixon. The guy Playing the piano sounds like he... More

As has been mentioned, only a limited number of exhibits are open to the public during the renovation of the museum. We arrived late in the day which was enough time to tour the presidential helicopter and the lovely little birthplace of Richard Nixon. Both of these require the escort of a guide who explains the basics of what you're... More

The library was beautiful, however under construction and not everything was open. We were able to see the Presidents helicopter, residence, & grave. As well they had a simulated reflection pool. We will return in October when the library is expected to be open. The tour guides were awesome.

While preparing for our visit to the area, we learned that the museum was closed for remodeling but that Nixon's birth home, helicopter, and a few displays were available to see. We decided to go anyway and we are so glad we did! We spent 2 hours taking in the limited attractions so we can't wait to come back to... More
