Background History From California’s Office of Historic Preservation:
In 1912 Frank and Hannah Nixon built this modest farmhouse on their small citrus ranch. Here Richard Nixon was born, January 9, 1913, and spent his first nine years. He served his country as Congressman, U.S. Senator, Vice President, and 37th President of the United States (1969-1974). He was the first native-born Californian to hold the Presidency. President Nixon achieved significant advances in International Diplomacy by ending U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, opening lines of communication with China and the Soviet Union, and initiating the Middle East Peace process.

This place is amazing. Be prepared to spend at least a couple of hours to see everything. This is with me skipping most of what was inside the museum gallery. I kind of skipped it to go see the Richard Nixon house, burial site and the Army One helicopter because the rain was about to drop.
The Richard Nixon house was the most memorable site. It was a very humble house built by President Nixon’s father. Impressive… There are pictures of the inside of the house in my photo gallery.
I went with my son so there was a $16.00 adult and $6.00 child (ages 5-11) entrance fee.
