You really must see for yourself!
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum
Simi Valley, California
Attending TREX18: Melanie Salvesen
The American Presidency comes alive at the Reagan Library. From walking on board an actual Air Force One aircraft, to viewing a full-scale replica of the White House Oval Office to touching an authentic piece of the Berlin Wall to strolling through exquisite landscaped grounds, to reflecting at President and Mrs. Reagan’s Memorial Site, the Reagan Library is truly one of the most unique and beautiful travel destinations in southern California.
In addition to the permanent galleries, the Reagan Library brings in world-class exhibitions. In 2019, enjoy exhibits such as “Pompeii: The Exhibition,” an exhibit featuring over 150 2,000-year-old authentic artifacts which had been preserved in the ash on loan from the renowned Naples National Archaeological Museum in Italy. You can also experience “Holiday Lights,” a nighttime, outdoor walking tour of the entire Reagan Library campus filled with thousands of Christmas Lights, live musical entertainment, and more! Visit reaganfoundation.org/library-museum/special-exhibits/ for more info on these and other exhibits.
Group discounts are available, and group dining options include White House luncheons under the wings of Air Force One. Although the museum is designed for self-guiding, docent led tours are available for groups for an additional fee. Guests at the Reagan Library can also enjoy a meal or beverage at one of our two on-site restaurants, including Reagan’s Country Café and The Ronald Reagan Pub, or pick up a souvenir at our Museum Store.
