No matter your political views this is an amazing experience. The Air Force One exhibit is majestic and so cool to go through. The Oval Office is set up exactly how it was when Reagan was president. Such a beautiful place of history and nostalgia.

This is the only presidential library I've visited that bullies visitors to spend more money than they want to. It starts with a pushy salesperson who intercepts you before you get to the ticket window, continues at the Air Force One exhibit and the Presidential helicopter. These salespeople want you to buy a more expensive admission ticket and family portraits... More

we had our holiday luncheon here that includes the tour of this museum. the food was ok but the museum is amazing. There's a lot of things to see and it was touching to relive the past. our tour is about 2 hours long and we wandered on our own after that. We were able to get inside the air... More

Easy drive ( about an hour ) from many parts of Los Angeles; ;this library museum is chocked full of history, exhibits and memorabilia from Reagan's terms as governor and president. Air Force One and the helicopter and limo he used are here as well. This library is a must for any Reagan fan or just history in general fro... More

The Rinald Reagan Presidential Library is located about 45 minutes northwest of LA in beautiful Simi Valley, CA. Perched at the top of a hill, it offers commanding views of the valley with a well-layed out site plan. The exhibition rooms are well thought out and often provides movies and interactive displays throughout the visit. The piece de resistance is... More

Filled with videos and information that makes you appreciate the man, his decisiveness, and his sense of humor. Learned a lot about his pre-politics life and how this may have prepared him for his biggest role. Don't forget to check out the new (unrelated) exhibit about artificial intelligence and scientific inventions used in everyday life.

Great library with tons of history, but they try too hard to strong arm people at the door to buy a season pass for all presidential libraries. Who is going to go to all the presidential libraries or come 5 times in one year? It didn't make sense and it was too much strong-arming. I loved the library and had... More

It is in the middle of nowhere, but this place is expansive, comprehensive and absolutely worth it. Walking through the library the exhibits recount the life and times of Reagan impressively. The library is situated high up on a hill top so the views west during sunset are spectacular. The museum features an actual Air Force One Boeing 707 which... More

Visiting the museum is like being transported into the 1980s. The visual presentations are very detailed, and the venue is spectacular. I especially enjoyed seeing Air Force One inside the building.
