The permanent galleries reopened 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.
