Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, Simi Valley

(4.7/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library holds 60 million pages of documents, 1.6 million photographs, over 150 km (95 mi) of motion picture film, a piece of the Berlin wall, and a presidential airplane. Read, watch, or listen about Reagan's life and work. Walk onboard a Boeing 707 used as Air Force One and see his 1965 Ford Mustang. Take a peek into the replica of the presidential Oval Office, and note how the president Reagan had his desk altered to prevent the drawers from hitting his long legs. If you feel overwhelmed by the 22,600 sq m (243,000 sq ft) of space, take a guided tour. A cafe, a pub, and a store are on site. If you wish, you can have your own ocean-view picnic at the visitors' park.

  • We had really nice time, very interesting and learning experience. Very well organized and maintained, wheelchair friendly. All associate very informative and really happy to help you. You can get professional picture next to presidential airplane, it's approximately $24.
  • It was an amazing place I loved it besides the fact of most the staff at the front desk were very rude when I was asking about my son's school and where I could find them. Being a paying customer I would have like to have been treated a little nicer when asking a question instead of one lady telling me I would see him later(which I didnt) and I felt that was rude. Other than that it was a beautiful place.
  • At first the price seemed to be a little high, but by the end I think I would have paid double what they asked for. My husband and I planned on being there only a couple hours, but we ended up staying the entire day. Fabulous museum. This library would make any president proud.
  • I went on field trip with JROTC class in High School and it was the best experience i ever had and will never forget theres so much history and beauty in this place
  • We planned on spending half a day but ending up spending the whole day because it was so interesting. We kind of rushed through the last part of the museum to use the last 30 minutes before closing to briefly skim through the temporary Vatican exhibit. Reagan lived a very interesting and honest life. Everyone should definitely see this museum to see how a great man got this country out of a ten year stagflation by getting rid of the things that our current politicians are doing again to turn us into a nanny state. "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction." -Ronald Reagan
