FOR SIX WEEKS ONLY: Nearly two-dozen fashion favorites and sartorial specialties of our First Ladies are coming to Yorba Linda.
This beautiful exhibit will feature actual and exact replica dresses designed to appear as if they are walking down a runway.

VOTE LIKE YOUR WHOLE WORLD DEPENDED ON IT:
The Story of the 1968 Election
Special Exhibit Opens August 8th!
This new, highly-visual, originally-curated exhibit at the Nixon Library will dig up a time capsule to peel back a veil on the presidential election that capped one the most divisive, colorful, and consequential years in American history.
The three final presidential candidates will present you with their contrasting visions for America — and America's role in the world — culminating in the chaotic Democratic National Convention in Chicago and Richard Nixon's hairbreadth victory that November.
