The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is celebrating the 50th anniversary of many “things,” including the Moon Landing.

Today the City of Fullerton in partnership with the Richard Nixon Library put together the Moon Landing 50th anniversary exhibits.

One of the perks to be a journalist, I got to visit the exhibits for free- It cost $17 for adults and $11 for children, free for children on a school field trip. In preparation for today’s ceremony, many local schools children attended the library to celebrate today’s historic day.

The library has very interesting exhibits related to the 60s, including the Vietnam War, the 1963 Birmingham riots, the Tet Offensive (1968) between other events from the 60s.

The Library still has the original home, where Richard Nixon born, with its rose garden.

Also, it holds part of the National Archives with 46 million pages of textual records, 3,431 hours of White House tapes, 418,000 photographs, 5,175 hours of video recording available for researchers.

Enjoy the tour! ❤
