Our tour guide insisted President Obama was a Muslim.. so there is that... but once I got past that horror, I was able to enjoy the museum. A lovely tribute to Ronald Reagan. Well curated. Interesting.

The Reagan Ranch Center is a must see if you are a local or a visitor. Regardless of your politics, I find the presidential history of the US fascinating and informative.

Tried to visit on a Saturday and a Monday morning. Closed both times although website indicated otherwise. Staffer in office did not even get up to come to the door. Only parking seems to be via Amtrak gate.

Great place to learn about the Reagan Ranch. It isn't political and gives some different interesting information that I did not know about President Reagan.
