“We couldn’t be more pleased to reopen our doors to the community,” said John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute. “When President Reagan opened his Library thirty years ago, I’m sure he never imagined it would be shut down for one day, let alone for 14 months. We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back and to showcasing all that we have done to improve our visitor’s experience.”
When the Reagan Museum reopens on May 26, it will begin by operating Wednesday through Sunday each week. It will also be open for Memorial Day on May 31.
On May 22, 2021, four days before the museum reopens to the public, all Reagan Library members are welcome to visit the Reagan Library and tour the galleries.READ MORE: COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Underway In Pasadena: 'We Are Down To Our Final Days Before State Opens'
