    This was my 3rd time to visit the library. The library is well designed and the historical information about Nixon is enlightening. The good and evil of his administration is unvarnished.  more »

    Wonderful museum with plenty of history that defined Ex-Pres Richard Nixon's administration. Museum's exhibits are really well organized, neat and very educational. Personally, my favorite part of the museum is the timeline of the Watergate scandal and the downfall of Nixon as US President. The museum, outdoor garden and Nixon's birthplace house sits on a 9 acre land. Admission is relatively affordable. Parking lot is huge. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. A must see museum for families and every American who want to get to know Richard Nixon as a president, as a man and a husband.

    Great historical information. Beautiful and helpful visuals. I would like to return with some members of my family. One gets a good feeling of the white house.

    I visited the Nixon Library when it opened in 1990, went to Nixon's funeral in 1994, and recently visited in 2017--there's a wealth of history that should be appreciated. Nixon's birthplace is in the same location as when he was a child and is accessible. Always enjoy my time spent visiting this library 😊

    Amazing museum, and plenty of neat exhibits. Presents the Nixon presidencies and lifetime in a very different light than they most often are. The birthplace is also great to see. So is Nixon's helicopter. Too bad they aren't open longer. Get there early to be able to see everything inside. super-informative. I think everybody should visit this museum.
