COST:        

  • $3.00 per person

Join us for a guided tour of the Nixon Library and the Apollo 11: One Giant Leap for Mankind exhibit. 

 The presidential museum features 22 unique spaces that incorporate multimedia and interactive technologies. Visitors begin their journey in the new Malek Theater and enjoy a 13-minute orientation film before entering the permanent galleries in the “Wave of Change” gallery, which covers a period of great upheaval throughout the 1960s and during the months leading up to the November 1968 presidential election. Travel through President Nixon’s presidency and resignation and return to his origins in the “Back to the Beginning” gallery. From there, travel through Nixon’s life and his extraordinary accomplishments prior to becoming the 37th President of the United States. The journey ends with Richard Nixon’s post-presidency period and his contributions as elder statesman, his impact on American culture, a solemn remembrance of Mr. and Mrs. Nixon’s memorial services, and the short “Epilogue” film at the conclusion of the exhibit.

APOLLO 11 Exhibit:

Museum-goers will take a thrill ride through the Space Race of the 1950s and 1960s, President Kennedy’s famous challenge to go to the moon, and the scientific and technological advancements that were developed —many

in Southern California— to ensure success and survival on this inspirational mission.

The exhibit’s originally-created, 360-degree virtual reality experience will transport visitors to the lunar surface on July 20, 1969, to see and hear Neil Armstrong’s “one giant leap for mankind.”

 Visitors will sit in a 1969 American living room and watch the moon landing just like people all over the world did on the historic night 50 years ago. All subsequent lunar landings happened during the Nixon administration, and Richard Nixon remains the only president with his name on a plaque on the lunar surface.
