After a year-long closure and a $15 million renovation, the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum has reopened. As observed by the Los Angeles Times, the various galleries present “an unflinching but well-rounded portrait of a complicated man whose long career has often been overshadowed by his quick and stunning fall from grace.” The redesigned permanent galleries introduces the public to new and engaging displays that challenge visitors’ critical thinking with a historical perspective of President Nixon’s public and private life. The new galleries are enhanced with exciting interactive exhibitions and the latest in audiovisual technology. The New Nixon Library will interest a broad range of visitors, including younger, tech-savvy audiences. Enjoy lunch on your own at the Library’s beverage and sandwich cart and explore the on-site gift shop. Step-on guide John Powers, who has extensive experience in presenting Nixon on stage, will prepare you for this journey with historical remembrances of the former president from the ‘40s through the ‘70s.  Fee includes library/museum entrance fee and professionally-guided tour fee.
