Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum reviews
This is such a beautiful presidential library!! The watergate tapes are fascinating, but the gowns worn by the First Lady are breath taking. What a unique piece of history that is highlighted here. I.... more »
Richard M. Nixon is a much under estimated man. His cover-up of the Wastergate burglars destroyed his presidency. Many people still can't work out whaat the fuss was about. This library and museum... more »
I very much enjoyed this Presidential Library. I appreciated the fact that the Curators attempted to present a balanced view of Richard Nixon, and even devoted an entire gallery to the Watergate scandal. Nixon's birthplace house, and Presidential helicopter are also interesting exhibits. Well worth a visit.
For me, this is one of the more interesting of the presidential libraries. But then again, for better or worse, Nixon was one of the more interesting presidents. The museum has the normal things that a presidential library museum has, but it was built on the grounds of his birthplace, which is one of the highlights of the compound. However, to me, the most exciting piece on the grounds is he helicopter that was Marine One on the day that Nixon left the White House. While you can't take photos inside, you can take one standing at the top of the stairs flashing the victory sign like he did the final time that he boarded it.
