  • We enjoyed our visit to the Reagan presidential museum and WW2 exhibit. I didn’t realize that if we purchase a discounted membership and get into all presidential museums for free-it was $41 extra...

  • This was our first visit and we had a great time learning. The WW2 exhibit was a bonus and great learning experience. It's a large building and it's lots of walking but take it slow and it's doable. The lunch option are reasonable and tasty.
  • We hadn’t been to the Reagan Library for a few years. It was nice to return. All of the docents are very helpful and friendly. In addition to their regular impressive historical displays, they had the World War 2 Exhibit which was was so moving and large. There are multiple displays on two floors. There was so much to see. Not to mention the outside views were beautiful. Cannot wait to go back!
  • Anyone interested in Reagan, his presidency, or American history won't be disappointed. We especially enjoyed the views and the Air Force 1 exhibit. Parking was no problem and we got our tickets online ahead of time.
  • I could feel how one person lives. There were many stories about him and also had enjoyable displays which could participate with child too. The whole concept is connected with souvenir too. Curators have a pretty good job and I am happy to see how they love this place. I also love to get photo infront of the helicopter and air plane which he was usually using. Everything was so perfect for me... so memorable for us🥰
  • Second time visiting this beautiful library. We wanted to visit the WW2 exhibit and it did not disappoint. The staff here is always friendly and informative. I would give yourself at least 2 hours to walk thru everything. Stop and get a snack at the cafe and enjoy the absolutely breathtaking views. And visit the gift shop to buy a package of jelly beans ( you will know why after visiting the library )
