Due to the renovation, admission to the Nixon Library is half priced.

Tour Richard Nixon's Original Birthplace

Walk through Richard Nixon's original 1910's humble farmhouse birthplace - in the same location where RN's father built it over 100 years ago - with its original furnishings. Experience life in rural Yorba Linda just as RN did.

Climb Aboard Marine One

The glimmering presidential helicopter that took Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford to all corners of the globe. A rare glimpse into history unlike any other!

The Katherine B. Loker Center and White House East Room

The Nixon Library features an exact replica of the White House East Room, the largest room in the Executive Mansion. We invite you to join the millions of guests who have experienced its beauty and timeless elegance.

Another great Presidential Library. Very well done and informative. Did not gloss over the Watergate scandal. Very good timeline on the events that led to the resignation. Many videos and displays highlighting his achievements, which were many. This is definitely a must see

Having been very young when Nixon was President, I remember seeing him on TV and the things that were said about him at the time. Therefore I had one impression of him which wasn't negative or positive just a little skeptical of him. After visiting here I have a new impression of Nixon. The experience here showed Nixon as totally... More

Enjoyed a patriotic concert in an impressive indoor venue. The museum itself is a well balanced and fair review of the president's term in office that educated and entertained on the life of a significant president and presidency. The museum doesn't shy away from Watergate, to its credit and integrity. The Marine One helicopter and the period limousine were excellent.... More

I understand that the Museum recently reopened with new exhibits and they are well done. Great review of the years during the Nixon Presidency. and nothing really glossed over. Busy day as it was Veterans Day and judging by the crowd and their reactions, the Museum was a hit for them also. Not a bad drive from L.A. and I... More

Was a well balanced and fair review of the president's term in office showing both the highs and lows. Got to know more about Nixon the man, politician and elder statesman. Being able to go inside Marine copter one was a real treat, the same one he used when he left the White House after his resignation.

Visited here on Veteran's Day and had the added treat of a program with music and speakers. The Museum is well done and covers the positives and negatives of R.M.Nixon and his life. Ended up spending over 3 hours and will have to return again, Interesting to compare his time in office with what is going on today both here... More

A 15 minute video serves as a prelude to entry into the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library. The video tells it like it is and calls the hard shots from the outset. We understood that the Library had recently been redone and that it showed Mr. Nixon "warts and all" but this was beyond expectation. VERY WELL DONE and definitely... More

Watergate is the first thing that comes to mind whenever Nixon is mentioned but there was a lot more to him than that. I have visited five presidential museums so far and this newly remodeled one ranks right up there with the best. I spent 2 - 2 1/2 hours here viewing all the exhibits. Arrived right at the time...

This is the fifth Presidential Library that I have had the opportunity to visit. I find it very fascinating to learn something new about each of the men (currently) that have held the office of the Presidency. The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is located on a very well kept property that is right off a busy boulevard and... More

We totally enjoyed our three hours here in the refurbished exhibits. Wonderful docents and memorabilia. Nixon's birthplace is authentic and very interesting. Gardens and graves well tended.
