The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum will follow enhanced health and safety measures.

Face Coverings

All individuals visiting the Reagan Library Museum and grounds are required to wear face coverings. The face covering or mask must cover both the nose and the mouth. Visitors must provide their own face coverings.  

Stay Six Feet Apart

For your convenience, floor markers will indicate directional flow and proper spacing of individuals and groups. Practice social distancing during your visit by staying at least six feet from anyone not in your group. Groups of no more than six (6) will be able to tour the Museum together. Children must stay with adults at all times. Failure to follow social distancing procedures and face coverings for unvaccinated persons will result in removal from the Reagan campus.

Timed Entrance to the Museum

All entries to the Museum will be timed to allow for proper distancing within the Museum space. We highly encourage you to book tickets on-line to avoid long waiting periods for your specific timed entry.

Enhanced Cleaning Measures in Place

The Museum is conducting enhanced cleanings of the Museum and high-touch areas. Hand sanitizers are available throughout the Museum.

Contact Tracing

The Museum may share your name and email address with a governmental health authority should that information be requested for a COVID-19 related reason. If a visitor reports a COVID-19 diagnosis shortly after visiting the Museum, the Museum will use our contact information to notify other possible affected visitors. We will not release the identity of the affected individual. The Museum will not disclose your email address for any other purpose without your permission.

To ensure the safety and wellbeing of our shared community, we ask that anyone testing positive for COVID-19 (or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms) within five (5) days of your visit, please notify:

Laurie Woolsoncroft Cook
Director of Visitor Services
The Ronald Reagan Foundation
40 Presidential Drive
Simi Valley, CA 93065

Safety and Common Sense

If you are sick (or not feeling well), please visit us at another time. For the safety of all visitors and staff, anyone who is sick or has any sign of a respiratory illness should stay home.

For the mutual benefit of our shared community we ask that you practice general safety and common sense when visiting the Museum. Please check your temperature before you arrive to confirm you do not have a fever. Any visitor displaying visible symptoms of COVID-19 will be denied entry.

The Museum cannot guarantee that any visitor will not contract COVID-19 while in the Museum. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place at this time. The requirement for bag inspection and visitor screening on entrance means we cannot guarantee security officers can maintain 6-foot distancing during these procedures. Visitors to the Museum voluntarily assume all risks related to COVID-19 exposure. In the event of a reported COVID-19 exposure during your visit, the person making the reservation will be notified by email, and they will be responsible for notifying all members of their party.


The newest addition to the dining experience is our renovated Café, located off the Ruwe Terrace next to the Museum Store. The Bistro features different food stations offering fresh fare including a Salad Bar, Soup Station, Pizza Counter, Market Bar, and Grille.
