Museum to Reopen its Doors on October 14th!
A completely new and interactive presidential museum is opening at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum on October 14, 2016. The opening will come nearly a year after the $15-million construction began on the 25-year-old exhibits. The new museum will inspire guests to take an unexpected look at the life and legacy of our 37th president utilizing new technology and originally produced interactive media, creating a state-of-the-art learning environment. The new gallery will include a replica Oval Office, new interactive displays, and dramatic films and video clips.
