Great displays and interactive opportunities. A must see on State Street!! The docents are knowledgeable, friendly and know a lot about President Reagan and his history with the beautiful Rancho del Cielo.

Now realize how really great President Reagan was. What a moral and strong man of character he was, doing what is right under God, preserving our heritage and moving us forward. Lots of actual items from Reagan's ranch and photos bring visitors a personal presence. And, all this for no charge. Very worth it!

Docents will not leave you alone-they are nice but how about some space. The exhibits are OK but I feel the gravity of his 8 years in office is missing.

You will get a good deal of "propaganda" from the volunteers. However there are some fascinating exhibits and photos here.
