Well worth the trip to this sleepy small town. Loved every minute of our visit. Very informative docent and they even were very patient with our two-year old Mary. Wish more historic locations were this well organized and taken care of. Happy to see President Reagan visited and helped with the house. Keep up the great work!
Absolutely amazing place to visit. A true American hero. If you're within 50 or even 100 miles from here I recommend you take that detour and get here. Now the place is quaint, not alot of room, but definitely worth visiting.
We stopped today on a whim ,we had stopped at another place and it was closed so we headed to Dixon. When we arrived we caught the last tour of the day! They were very patient with us as the rest of our party visited the facilities and joined us! We went through the tour learned several things we had not known about Reagan! The gift shop was closed when the tour was over and Jerry our guide opened it up so we could purchase s few items and also started the movie that we had missed! Very friendly and an enjoyable stop! Thank you Jerry for accommodating all of us today! We will highly recommend others to stop!
The docent was very impressive with his knowledge and enthusiasm. The manager was full of info and trivia. Well worth the visit. Thanks.
I would like to say it was a privilege and pleasure going there and very well preserved house, the Executive director Patrick Gorman told me and my family some fascinating stories about Ronald Reagan and the gorgeous town of Dixon. A wonderful experience!
