Simi Valley California is home to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, a place that I have never been, though I worked as a (very) minor player during his administration. I once met him , but it was for only a nano-second.
Have any Insiders been to the Library and if so what was their impression? We are thinking of going there in March, and would have limited time, so we wondered what others who've been think and if they'd recommend something over others?
Thanks in advance.
Timely post! I would love to hear the impressions of those who have been there. I would very much like to schedule a visit to the library when I make a west coast excursion in mid April to southern CA and San Fran.
If you go, please let me know about your visit!
Been there and it was impressive! Going back in June and to the Ranch.
Was staying in Ventura and drove up to the Library and it was a great day. Then, I did not know that he was buried there and I was able to "Pay my respects".
Including The Channel Islands tour, along with Santa Barbara, I really enjoyed the train museum in Fillmore. I have always liked train travel and this was a very historic place. Many movies involved Fillmore trains and it was a great respite for the day.
Stepping, this was a great time!
First, thank you for your service to our great nation! I highly recommend a visit to Reagan's Library. I love presidential libraries (republican and democrat alike) and have been to Reagan's, Ikes, Truman's, Hoover's and Ford's. Reagan's is the best! There is an actual Air Force 1 that you can tour there. There is also a Marine One (Presidential Helicopter) there, but you cannot go inside. Other items I thought were neat, the actual booth from Reagan's favorite restaurant where he proposed to Nancy and artifacts from his home town. Like all other Presidential Libraries I have been to, the President's somber grave site is moving. Highly, Highly recommend!
