Reagan Ranch Center



Overview:

The Reagan Ranch Center in downtown Santa Barbara, California is open to the general public for tours and visitation Monday through Thursdays from 11 am to 4 pm. Admission is FREE.

These galleries feature original Reagan Ranch artifacts matched with state-of-the-art, interactive, multimedia exhibits that highlight the history of Ronald Reagan’s quarter-century at Rancho del Cielo and the accomplishments of his presidency.

Over six hours of dynamic multimedia exhibits provide access to exclusive speeches, interviews, radio addresses, and original video presentations. The centerpiece of the gallery is a 28-foot-long interactive “timeline” that gives users the ability to explore the “Western White House” during the 1980s.

The galleries also feature several unique collections on display, including the Lorraine Wagner Letter Collection, a nearly 300-piece collection of letters written by Ronald Reagan over a 50-year period and the Russell D. Sibert Collection, featuring rare Reagan-related memorabilia such as campaign buttons, posters, and commemorative items. A massive, 5,000 pound section of the Berlin Wall—torn down 20 years ago—greets visitors as they arrive at the Reagan Ranch Center, reminding the world of Ronald Reagan’s role in eliminating this assault on human dignity and freedom.

The president’s famous blue Jeep Scrambler, complete with “Gipper” license plate sits in the Center of gallery, flanked by a selection of his favorite books, an original saddle, and chainsaw owned and used by President Reagan. The Reagan Ranch Center is designed to engage visitors of all ages; younger children can even earn their “Junior Secret Service Clearance” by completing a fun and educational scavenger hunt.
