The Air Force One Pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation's Museum and Library is worth the drive to Simi Valley California even if you don't care about the Reagan presidency.

Former Air Force One

If you do care about the Regan presidency, however, the rest of the museum is a real treat too. There are hundreds of interesting artifacts on display (from the hundreds of thousands collected during his 8 years in the oval office).

Speaking of the Oval Office, they even have a nice replica of that famous room on-site.

I'll post way more pictures when I'm not uploading to Flickr from an EVDO connection.

I would hope than any US resident would have an interest in the Reagan presidency. Regardless of whether your not you agree with the man's politics, he was our President, and learning a little bit of history won't harm anyone.

I was wondering, does each president have his own Air Force One plane during his presidency period? Or is a new Air Force plane introduced each certain numbers of years?

This place looks really interesting. I have a lot of reservations about Reagan's policies, especially in Central America, but as Aaron notes that should not keep you from visiting and learning.

WALEG: Not new planes. Also note that if Jeremy took GW Bush up in his plane it would become "Air Force One" which is a term that means the role of the plane, not the particular craft.

Whoops - correction. I think it has to be an Air Force plane to be considered "Air Force One"

I have to agree with you that the Ronald Reagan Presidential Museum is a treat to explore. I've taken more than one friend or formal visitor from work to the site, and even those who earlier expressed disdain or indifference with the 40th President said they looked forward to a return visit.

With Warmest Wishes for 2007,

Reagan Museum is a good one but if you are looking for a good museum with multiple Air Force Ones, check out the United States Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH (I know it is a bit of a flight away) but it is well worth it and be sure to get a pass to go to the auxiliary hanger that is on the active part of the bass.

So many cool things there from Enola Gay to Space capsules and all sorts of aviation things.

Always one of my favorite field trips when growing up

The "Enola Gay" is not at the USAF Museum..."Bock's Car" is.
