Tickets & Hours

The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is Open!

After a six-month closure due to the Coronavirus, the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum has reopened its doors with health and safety guidelines in place and an all-new special exhibit for guests to enjoy.

The Library complex will reopen to the public in gradual phases as determined by the National Archives and Records Administration and the Richard Nixon Foundation, beginning on September 24 with the special exhibit, The Presidents Club: From Adams & Jefferson to Nixon & Trump, the Nixon Library Gift Shop, the Pat Nixon Rose Gardens and Amphitheater, the Memorial Site of President and Mrs. Nixon, and the White House East Room replica.

The Nixon Library’s permanent museum galleries will remain closed at this time. The open areas within the Library complex are being operated by the Richard Nixon Foundation.
