The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is located in Yorba Linda, California and houses Nixon Presidential Materials (textual, photographs, sound and moving images), Nixon White House Tapes, Nixon pre and post Presidential Materials, as well as the Museum, Birthplace, and Helicopter. The National Archives in College Park maintains reference copies of Nixon White House Tapes. These are duplicative of material available for research in Yorba Linda.
The permanent galleries opened to the public on October 14, 2016. In addition to these newly opened galleries, the grounds include President Nixon's Helicopter and Birthplace. The Helicopter and Birthplace may be closed due to inclement weather, including rain, wind, and excessive heat. Please contact us on the day of your visit to inquire of their status.
