In a storied career that spanned more than five decades, Ronald Reagan inspired Americans to act and achieve even more than they imagined. His legacy thrives at The Ronald Reagan Library and Museum where his life is traced through the events and exhibits that seek to bring his values, actions, and spirit of determination to live.
Each president decorates the Oval Office to suit his tastes. President Reagan, inspired by the West, added earthy colors, western art including a collection of bronze saddles, and, of course, a jar of jelly bellies for his desk! While at the Reagan Library, you will be able to view this full-scale replica of the Oval Office, decorated as it was during President Reagan’s presidency.
Ronald Reagan believed fervently in the greatness and goodness of America, and he knew that American strength was central to world peace. Nothing made him prouder than being Commander in Chief. You could see in his eyes how much it meant to receive, and return a salute.
He felt a special bond with the men and women in uniform, especially the young people from the small towns across America. That they were willing to risk their lives for their country never ceased to amaze and humble President Reagan.
