After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get one admission and a GuideCam tour to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library in Simi Valley (up to a $19 value). Children younger than 11 are admitted for free.
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library celebrates the life and career of 40th President Ronald Reagan with informational and interactive exhibits and historical tours through the campus's museum and library. Admission grants visitors access to numerous historical exhibitions, including a fragment of the Berlin Wall, a replica of the Oval Office, a secret replica of the Circle Office, and a granite memorial honoring President Reagan that looks out toward the Pacific Ocean. A handy GuideCam navigates visitors through the campus's halls, providing audio commentary in the voices of President and Mrs. Reagan on more than 50 stops. The GuideCam also acts as a camera that allows aspiring photogs to snap shots or take videos of their favorite displays that then trickle down to their personal email and can be shared with friends via social media or laptops on horseback. Additionally, visitors can walk and explore the real Air Force One tail number 27000, the same craft that served seven U.S. presidents from 1973-2001.
Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum chronicles the life and career of President Reagan on a sprawling, 100-acre Simi Valley campus. The museum's more than 100,000 square feet of exhibits, including an Oval Office replica and President Reagan's gravesite, draws in history buffs and provides children with an often-interactive primer to America’s 40th president and the 1976 winner of the Iditarod. Visitors can use the museum’s GuideCam handheld device for a detailed audio tour. Headphones allow private immersion in the background of exhibits such as Reagan's actual Air Force One and a piece of the Berlin Wall. Examining all the exhibits usually takes about three hours, though visitors can rest and refuel at the Ronald Reagan Pub housed within the museum, which features sandwiches, beverages, and a vintage Walter Mondale dartboard.
