Reagan Library Receives Donation for Renovations

The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation has donated $12.75 million to help fund the renovation of the Ronald Reagan Library and Museum’s exhibit galleries to coincide with President Reagan’s 100th birthday in 2011. The new museum experience combines static and interactive displays to pay tribute to America’s 40th president and his accomplishments. When the renovation is complete, 26,400 square feet of new interactive exhibits and never-before-seen artifacts and presidential gifts will open to the public. The Reynolds Foundation previously donated $8.7 million to build and endow the library’s Air Force One Discovery Center. The latest donation from the foundation helps to renovate the exhibit space for the first time since opening in 1991 in Simi Valley, former first lady Nancy Reagan said. “Thanks to exciting new technology, museum exhibits will tell Ronnie’s personal story—as well as the story of his impact on this country and the world—even better than before,” Reagan said.
