A wonderful place to take family and friends! The grounds of this estate are beautifully landscaped and the view is indescribable! Not only do they have interactive tours, but the artwork, ambiance and the historical articles are wonderful. Make sure that you get your free photo of you entering the Air Force One on the lower level before you leave. Also, they have a couple choices to grab some lunch or snacks. There is part of a pub that was brought in from Ireland and they also serve sandwiches and you can get a cold beer and admire the view! The gift shop is loaded with great souvenirs. They periodically have special exhibits to enjoy. If you purchase the friends and family, you and members can get in for free for a year! It is well worth the drive and a nice place to spend a half a day. I would highly recommend this attraction whether or not you are politically inclined.

I have been to Reagan presidential Library once before. Seeing rich displays of that era and walking through Air Force One is reason enough to go. However there is a temporary exhibit there now on Espionage which is fantastic! It is somewhat similar to the Spy Museum in Washington DC, but it is much easier to move through (and cheaper). Kids will love the laser beam room for testing their acrobatic skills at avoiding detection. Adults will love learning the rich history and reading about the spies on both sides of the Cold War.

Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes as there is a lot of ground to cover. All the exhibits were very well done and we also enjoyed the optional (extra $7) Spies exhibit. We rented the audio ipods (extra $7) and found them easy to use and worthwhile. We spent about 5 hours there, including lunch at their restaurant.

It's not just Ronald Reagan - replica of Kennedy's office, information on past presidents and lots of memorabilia.
Air Force 1 (which you can walk through) is fascinating. On holidays there are usually events for the kids - Abe Lincoln, etc.
Great for families.

See the Oval Office, Air Force One (707 version), Berlin Wall and many intriguing important political exhibits. Professionally presented and engaging.

Friendly, informative staff. Easy access and parking.

On a previous visit, the Reagan Library had one of the original Magna Carta parchments on loan and display for a time. All US Presidential libraries are well worth a visit.
