The Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is located in Yorba Linda, California and houses Nixon Presidential Materials (textual, photographs, sound and moving images), Nixon White House Tapes, Nixon pre and post Presidential Materials, as well as the Museum, Birthplace, and Helicopter. The National Archives in College Park maintains a small number of reference copies of Nixon White House Tapes and White House Communications Agency (WHCA) videotapes. These are duplicative of material available for research in Yorba Linda.
On November 2, 2015, the Nixon Library closed its museum galleries to the public to complete a re-design of the permanent and temporary exhibition gallery space and associated improvements at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. During the renovation of the museum galleries the Nixon Library campus is open to visitors. Tours of the President's Birthplace, the memorial sites of President and Mrs. Nixon, the First Lady's Gardens, the PresidentialHelicopter and the White House East Room are open at half the price of regular admission.
