A tourist attraction in Yorba Linda worth a visit. The presidential libraries system is a nationwide network of 15 libraries administered by the Office of Presidential Libraries, which is part of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). These are repositories for preserving and making available the papers, records, collections and other historical materials of every president of the United States. So at the Nixon library, there are exhibits showing the historical events during Nixon’s presidency. Nixon was credited for opening China. There is huge poster with life size bronze status of president Nixon and China’s then premier zhou shaking hand. For those of you that are interested in finding out more about the Cold War, many unclassified documents disclosed a lot of interesting intense moments between Russia and the West. Nixon’s presidential helicopter is also on display on the side yard of the library. It’s cool to see the inside of this flying machine. I thought it would be more plush. It’s a bit of a drive for me to get there but it was worth it to visit at a piece of history in person.
Visited Nixon Library on a weekend with friends. Great place to come visit and relive country's past history. Nixon life story with history of politics he was involved with. From Nixon's childhood all the way to his final days. Great place to check off anyone's bucket list. If you love history and want to revisit when we were all younger growing up.
My expectations were kind of low for this visit, but I came away feeling like this was a very worthwhile experience. My biggest concern was that the whole Watergate affair would be whitewashed or minimized. It wasn't. There is an entire room dedicated to the matter and his staff farewell address on a loop on one of the displays. I knew there was, what I assumed, was model of his boyhood home on the grounds. It's not a model, it's the actual home that his father built and the museum sits on the site of their orchard that was established in the early 1900's. A lot of the furnishings and accessories are also authentic as his mother had the wherewithal put their belongings in storage when the family relocated. They also have *the* helicopter that he boarded on the day he left the Whitehouse after the resignation.
Had a good time with the family here on a Sunday after 🎄🎅🤶. The intro video at the beginning was worth watching after you pay for admission 🎟️. Make sure you leave your pepper spray, guns🔫, and knives 🔪 at home. Price of admission was worth the value💲. The museum really highlighted the great things Nixon contributes to building America. Well balanced between his early childhood, law career, politics to his last days. Well organized. His childhood home 🏘️ tour was the highlight of his humble beginnings. Helicopter was not open. Had a few roses in bloom not too far from his tombstone and his wife's. Staff were very engaging and friendly. Glad the museum also highlighted some of the bombings that occurred in Cambodia. But, it did miss the amount of Khmer who suffered horrible amputations and death from US landmines and unexploded bombs. Approximately 2.8 tons of explosives 💣 we're dropped compared to 2 tons during WWII according to Bombs Over Cambodia 🇰🇭 by Taylor Owen and Ben Kiernan.
Such a wonderful Library to have in our community. Located in a fantastic city and located in a beautiful location. I'm spoiled to be able to walk these grounds every time I visit family down the street. Inside is a wealth of knowledge about President Nixon. You can see in one of my photos that the library is honoring Queen Elizabeth II.
