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.

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.

enjoy a little bit of history walking through this center. comfortable seating in the lobby for small kids to sit and relax if needed. A little disappointing that I heard the host offering others free DVD's upon leaving but did not offer to us :-(
