Attraction details
Owner description: The Reagan Ranch Center in downtown Santa Barbara, California is open to the general public for tours and visitation Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. These galleries feature original Reagan Ranch artifacts matched with state-of-the-art, interactive, multimedia exhibits that highlight the history of Ronald Reagan’s quarter-century at Rancho del Cielo and the accomplishments of his presidency.Over six hours of dynamic multimedia exhibits provide access to exclusive speeches, interviews, radio addresses, and original video presentations. The centerpiece of the gallery is a 28-foot-long interactive “timeline” that gives users the ability to explore the “Western White House” during the 1980s.

I would advise anyone visiting SB to stop by. Even if you are not interested in politics, it is a beautifully done museum that portrays Reagan's life and the Ranch very well. I visited only for about an hour, but plan on going back soon to see more!

Would highly recommend this. We were taken around by a guide who narrated with lots of helpful information, patiently answered questions, and even took our picture. Also, not only is it free but they make no obvious attempt to get donations.

Well worth the time to stop by and see a large selection if authentic artifacts. Great place with extremely nice people.

Since it is not possible to visit the ranch itself, the center gives a good presentation of Reagan's favorite home.

Owned and operated by the Young America's Foundation, the Reagan Ranch Center is an incredible experience. The Center offers all visitors an important piece of our nation's history. Be sure to include this tour in your Santa Barbara itinerary.
