The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is the presidential library of Richard Milhous Nixon, the 37th President of the United States. Located in Yorba Linda, California, the library is one of twelve administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. From its original dedication in 1990 until becoming a federal facility on July 11, 2007, the library and museum was operated by a private foundation and was known as the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace. The nine acre campus is Nixon's Birthplace where Nixon was born in 1913 and spent his childhood.
We watched the movie, visited the museum and toured the grounds. Surprisingly there was not a peep about Watergate.
This was former President Richard Nixon's birthplace and it is now the place that he and his wife were laid to rest. This is a beautiful building and gardens that gives the history of his life from birth, to his early days in college, to his time in the military, and to his presidency. There are several rooms with lots of memorabilia that really gives inside into his life. This is a great place for anyone who wants to learn more about him.
Apart from the historical aspects, one can also admire the beautiful reflecting pool and architecture of the place. You can also see the original house that Nixon grew up in and the helicopter that carried him away from the whitehouse for the last time after he resigned. A thoroughly fascinating place and a good way to spend a couple of hours.
