Perched on a mountaintop with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains, valleys and the Pacific Ocean, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library is one of California's most beautiful and unique destinations.

The Library's 300 acre site, about 45 miles from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), represents the "shining city on a hill" often referenced by President Reagan and appropriately serves as the final resting place of the nation's 40th President.

As a Presidential library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the Reagan Library, under the authority of the Presidential Records Act, is the repository of presidential records for President Reagan’s administration.  Our holdings include over 60 million pages of documents, over 1.6 million photographs, a half million feet of motion picture film and tens of thousands of audio and video tapes.  Additionally, the Library houses personal papers collections including documents from Ronald Reagan’s eight years as governor of California.  Information on accessing all of these records, including how to file a Freedom of Information Act request, can be found under the "I am a Researcher" tab above.
