Having been to a number of presidential libraries took the the chance to go to Ronald Regan's library in Simi Valley California. The setting is stunning with amazing views across the valley. The library is very well laid out with lots of material provided in a clear and logical pattern. Regan's warmth, personal charm and wit and the strong support... More

This was our 8th different Presidential Library. Seeing Air Force One (27000) was interesting - but more bang for the buck at Wright Patterson. The museum presents a fair amount of data, but reflects more of the Presidency than who Reagan was as a person. Minimal exhibits on issues such as Iran Contra or Challenger. We were asked to take...

My friend wanted company because she was taking her 2 kids and her friends 3 kids to the Ronald Reagan Library. I was the designated driver! I also went in with them. They really liked it. I thought it was interesting. We bought our tickets through Groupon.com

I enjoyed the Richard Nixon museum but this place tops the lot. Built on a magnificent hilltop with commanding views of Simi Valley the Ronald Reagan library is simply a breathtaking sight. There is so much to see. You can begin with the many galleries depicting the life and political career of this much loved president. Every aspect is covered... More

It was not crowded when we went to the Reagan Library and Museum so we were able to take our time and not be rushed through. The displays are all very well done and interesting. Loved Air Force One and other vehicles and the Oval Office. I highly recommend a visit !!

A wonderful experience for those who love and miss Reagan as well as those who are neutral and want to understand how America did so well in the 80s and managed to end the COld War without conflict. It's a touching story of a man, his family and the love he and his wife Nancy had for each other. It... More

This was the reason we came to this area. Good decision. The Audio Tour is definitely worth it. We spent the whole day there entering at 10:00 when the doors opened to 17:30 when they closed. Probably could have spent more time.
