Stopped here recently and it was a surprise. Starting from the welcoming video, the museum was very well arranged. Politics aside, if you can get past Watergate, you can appreciate all that Nixon accomplished, such as OSHA, Title IX & the EPA. Exhibits were very...More

Well worth the stop. A great trip back in history that makes you rethink about a very successful man who made such great contributions to our country and was heavily penalized for lying. Too bad most people immediately think of Watergate. The museum does a...More

Very surprised by this Presidential Library. Very informative and upfront about all his accomplishments (which were many!) and his unfortunate character flaws. For better or worse, Nixon accomplished very important legislation and policies, especially foreign policy. It is all spelled out in this museum. Take...More

We were skeptical about this because his whole career was overshadowed by Watergate. He actually did some interesting and important things during his tenure. The library was well laid out and had plenty of interesting items and displays--including a decommissioned Marine 1 helicopter in the...More

We're glad you walked away with a greater appreciation for President Nixon. We treasure the Marine One helicopter. It's a visitor favorite!

I am pretty tainted as Nixon was one of my most admired Presidents. What he did for the foreign relations was above what any had done prior to his taking office. A very good video in the beginning which expressed just that. The grounds are...More

This Library offers some nice exhibits. The recreation of the Oval Office is impressive and we especially enjoyed the knowledgeable Docent who spent time with us explaining all the interesting details. Liked the outdoor areas and Nixon's childhood home. Unfortunately, the helicopter was closed due...More
