Some additional information regarding the California Christmas Tree display:
This year, the annual Christmas Tree Exhibit at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum will showcase the great state of California! To a young 20-something Ronald Reagan, California was a “place of unlimited opportunity, a golden dream for all who have the courage to dare.” It is with this spirit that the Reagan Library will showcase 23 trees representing not only tourist attractions such as the cities of San Francisco and nearby Los Angeles, but also historical landmarks and national parks like Yosemite and the Redwoods. Your holiday season won’t be complete until you visit A California Christmasand marvel at the true uniqueness of the Golden State.
Admission to the A California Christmas exhibit includes admission into the entire Reagan Museum, the Air Force One Pavilion, and the SPY: The Secret World of Espionage exhibit.
