This was an unexpected pleasure. Some have complained about the need to provide “personal information”. It requires name address and email address if you have one. Can’t see why that would put you off visiting. The staff were incredibly helpful , informative and friendly. It...More

We visited here for the first time this week. We've always wished we could visit the Camino del Cielo Ranch itself, but this is the next best thing, I guess. Hosted by the Young America's Foundation, this look at the retreat enjoyed by the Reagans...More

As another reviewer noted it is a creepy that you have to provide personal information in order to enter. I've decided to give it a go and it was interesting and staff were nice.

Wonderful insights into the personal side of President and Nancy Reagan. Take the tour with the Docent to learn more details. Park in pay lot in front of the Center you get 75 minutes free and $1.50 for the next hour.

Santa Barbara doesn’t seem to advertise this place to much & I guess that’s to be expected for CA. Located on State St. & not too far from the cruise pier, we made this our first stop. Nicely maintained, informative exhibits & friendly staff made...More

The Docents are amazing - they add so much to the visit. Yet the artifacts and information about Regan's Ranch nearby was simply fascinating...I had no idea that the Regan's Ranch was just a small 2 bedroom very modest old home on 600 acres.
