Situated on nine rolling acres, the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace offers visitors an insider’s glimpse into the events, people and world that shaped, and were shaped by, the 37th President. The museum nearly doubled in size recently with the opening of the Katherine B. Loker Center and Annenberg Court. At the center of the 47,000 square-feet expansion is a full-size replica of the elegant White House East Room, designed not only as a museum attraction, but also as an unforgettable location for conferences, lectures, weddings and charity galas. In addition, 4,100 square feet of new gallery space will be dedicated exclusively to original presentations and important traveling museum exhibitions. The Annenberg Court entrance pavilion and reception center provide a stately new entry to the museum. As visitors enter, they will be greeted by a stunning reproduction of the official Presidential seal, 19 feet in diameter and rendered in full color. From the humble farmhouse built by his father in 1912, to priceless gifts from heads of state, to the peaceful memorials of President and Mrs. Nixon, the museum and its beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens trace the long road from Richard Nixon’s Yorba Linda boyhood to the Presidency and beyond. Since its opening on July 20, 1990, the museum has attracted nearly 2.6 million visitors and undertaken the most ambitious special exhibition and event programming of any Presidential Library in the nation. In addition, it has launched the Nixon Center, a bipartisan institute in Washington, D. C., for the study and analysis of U.S. foreign policy challenges.
