In a leadership career that spanned more than five decades, Ronald Reagan inspired Americans to achieve more than they imagined. His legacy thrives at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, one of Southern California’s most beautiful destinations, where an ongoing stream of interactive events and exhibits rediscovers Reagan’s values, actions, and spirit of determination.
Experience the studio days that shaped his future role as the “great communicator.” Glimpse at an authentic piece of the Berlin Wall, torn down from his bold leadership against the Cold War. View an exact replica of the White House Oval Office where President Reagan faced difficult decisions as commander-in-chief. Step aboard and tour through Air Force One 27000, the airplane that flew seven U.S. presidents over a million miles, to learn how President Reagan changed the face of global diplomacy.

While you’re there, don’t forget to visit the Library’s brand new special exhibit, “D23 Presents Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives,” which is the largest exhibition ever curated by the Walt Disney Archives, at 12,000 square feet. From Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse to Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain America, the exhibition features more than 500 artifacts, at least half of which have never been seen by the public — including models, props, costumes, set pieces, and artwork from throughout Disney history.
The Reagan Library is located in Simi Valley, Calif., only 35 miles from Toluca Lake. For more information, visit www.reaganlibrary.com or call 800-410-8354.
