The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum is a must-see Southern California tourist attraction. Walk onboard Air Force One, act in a movie with Ronald Reagan, touch a piece of the Berlin Wall, and so much more.

Fascinating museum, well worth the trip up the hill. Great location. My teenage kids were a little harder to please but they found enough there to keep their interest. Well worth a trip if you get the chance

I have to go there for a month to do research for my doctoral thesis . I'm not sure when at this point , but are there any accommodations for visiting students/ scholars on site or nearby or would I need to rent a hotel room or use Airbnb ? Marlene

I agree with previous comments. Simi Valley is a very nice community and very convenient to the Reagan Library. I would opt for Simi Valley rather than Thousand Oaks just because of traffic to and from the library area.
