Came here when staying in the Disneyland Resort are because I wanted something "not touristy" for a break. What a great place this was!I arrived at 1pm, and the place was not really busy - maybe just reopening slowly as people wander out again, as I cannot imagine this would not be a place that draws people through its offerings, and it does offer SO much! In fact, I stayed until closing at 5pm, and probably would have enjoyed another hour to really absorb everything, although I did take the time to read and interact with exhibits, as you should.The museum itself is set up in a linear way, so you just meander from one exhibit to another, and it is sequentially set up in most ways, exploring themes of Richard Nixon's life and ascent to the highest elected office in America.Galleries dedicated to the 60s, an exact replica of the oval office when he was president, his struggles to deal with Vietnam, his relationship with China and his foreign and domestic polices, his White House years and reelection campaign of 1972 all showcase his major political life and achievements (and failures, as well). The Watergate gallery is quite extensive, and really digs into the politics that Nixon got entrapped in and why he may have done so. Ultimately, it would end what seems to be an amazing political career in shame.After this gallery, we are then brought "Back to the Beginning" which in a series of galleries traces Richard Nixon's life from boyhood and family, through early and college school years, into his first jobs and service as a commissioned Naval officer. It then presents his beginnings of political service, as a representative and senator, on to Vice President and then President. There are then some poignant memories of how he lived his years after his resignation - until his death and burial here at the library, with his beloved wife Pat, both resting a stone's throw from his boyhood farmhouse, which was brought here.I must admit, having been born in the early 60s I knew of Richard Nixon as a disgraced President, of the "Tricky Dick" and "I am not a crook" characterizations. But after my visit, I am in admiration of his life, both personally and politically. I lost count of how many environmental and protection of civil rights laws he signed, how many openings for world peace he created and how he sought to make government more efficient at the federal level. Listening to his inaugural address, I think back on the last president and wonder how we have gone so far astray. His words of 50 years ago echo so true today.Whatever you may think of Richard Nixon, take a chance to visit this library - you will be moved in some way, wherever you stand in your view of his life.

We had a wonderful visit to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. We arrived just before noon. There was plenty of parking. There were quite a few docents to add to the learning experience.- Our first stop was the replica of the Nixon Oval Office. A docent told us about many of the details in the replica.- We then walked through more permanent exhibits in the Museum. There were many splendid multimedia sections covering politics and history. The section on his childhood and connection to family was told well. Our personal favorite display was Nixon's Yellow Notepads; at the top of the notepad on display was "Each day a chance to do something memorable for someone"- Next we walked around the Pat Nixon Garden. Lots of roses in the collection in addition to trees and other plants. Beautiful. A small arbor was set up at the head of the fountain pool getting ready for a special event.- A docent took us through the birthplace house. Notable was the numerous musical instruments. Interesting fact was told about the fireplace.- Walked around the Presidential Helicopter.- A docent walked us to the replica East Room which is used for special events.- Our last stop was the Presidents Club which touched on how various presidents worked with each other.From our visit, we found many valuable leadership insights. Inspiring. Great history lessons. We were there for a wonderful 2.5 hours."The day indeed was splendid" - excerpt from a letter to his daughter Tricia before her wedding

The Nixon Presidential Library is an interesting place to explore the significant issues that affected America from 1969 to 1975. The library also tells the story of the political rise and fall of California's own Richard Nixon, born and raised in the Yorba Linda area. I think that regardless of what you think of Richard Nixon, the library is an excellent place to relive American history and come away with a better understanding of the great events of the Nixon presidency. It also offers fun and entertaining interactive exhibits for children.

I never fully understood the man Nixon, This visit provided a better understanding of what he did in office and the personal side of his life. The media was not a friend of his. You have to read and absorb his life through the exhibits. The museum and gardens are very nice to visit. They also offer special events and programs.

Well done chronology of Nixon's life and accomplishments. The exhibits were easy to follow and one could take as much or as little time as you want.

From the time you enter the museum to the end of the 3+ hours of walking through this memorial of President R. Nixon, one becomes taken back to the 1960’s-70’s era. It is a wealth of Nixon’s own personal story, his days from boyhood to presidency to his death. It has many historical facts and documents that help you trace days of justice and injustice. I’m 70 yrs. and I feel the senior price of $12.00 was very acceptable for everything one saw, listened to or read. Everything from the parking lot to the restrooms were exceptionally clean. The staff were very informative, professional, and courteous. This is the first Presidential Library I have been to, but now would love to visit all if them!

This presidential museum covers the many (and unfortunately overshadowed) accomplishments of Richard Nixon. Although Watergate is thoroughly covered (and not whitewashed) you are reintroduced through audio, visual, and interactive exhibits of the significant policies and social changes that this administration enacted. Nixon's boyhood home (on its origial spot) with original furnishings, along with the infamous helicopter that transported Richard and Pat from the Whitehouse after his resignation, are also on the grounds for touring. The cafe is bare bones packaged sandwiches, chips, drinks, salads, and cookies. We spent 5 hours there including a break for lunch.And dont skip the orientation film. It is the perfect introduction for what you are about to see.
