About The Richard Nixon Foundation

Educating the world about the life, legacy and times of America's 37th President

Our Mission

The Richard Nixon Foundation supports programing and special exhibits on the nine acre campus of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, which includes the First Lady’s Garden, the President’s faithfully restored 1910′s birthplace, the magnificent full-size replica of the White House East Room, and the memorial sites of President and Mrs. Nixon.

The Nixon Presidential Library is home to more than 46 million pages of documents, photographs, tapes, materials and other resources from Richard Nixon’s life. It is a nationally recognized research center that allows students and scholars the opportunity to study, debate and analyze President Nixon’s significant legacy and historic presidency.

As a center for public affairs, the Foundation’s year-round programming features national policy conferences, study groups, town meetings, school editor forums, and a continuous schedule of distinguished speakers, authors and leaders from government, politics, business, media, and public affairs.

“Libraries can be passive, dry repositories of books and documents. I hope that the Nixon Library and Birthplace will be different – a vital place of discovery and rediscovery, of investigation and contemplation, of study, debate, and analysis.” -President Nixon
