New Exhibit Celebrates Richard Nixon Centennial
Patriot. President. Peacemaker, the Richard Nixon Centennial exhibit, is a visually stunning journey through Richard NixonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s life that shows him as a man who rose from humble beginnings to become the 37th President and one of the most important figures of the 20th Century.

The exhibit features five main themes of President NixonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s life, each essential in developing his core philosophy and legacy.
RN: How American
Covers the early years and features some of the triumphs that Richard Nixon was able to over come.
RN: In the Arena
One of Nixon’s favorite phrases “In The Arena” is a component that features his quick rise from congress to Vice Presidency of the United States
The 1960s: Tunnel of Turmoil
The decade of uneasiness in the United States. Martin Luther King Jr, John F. Kennedy, and Robert Kennedy were assassinated.Ã‚Â The Civil Rights movement, the rise of feminism, and the Generation Gap all contributed to a sense of enormous change.Ã‚Â By the late 1960s, America was teetering on the brink.
Richard Nixon is perhaps best known for his foreign policy prowess, and this exhibit powerfully showcases his achievements in this field. From ending the Vietnam War to opening relations with China and hard-headed dÃƒÂ©tente with the Soviet Union, NixonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s foreign policy gave the United States the upper hand in the Cold War.
RN: Elder Statesman
On August 9, 1974, Richard Nixon resigned the Presidency rather than continue a festering political battle over Watergate. Follow Richard Nixon into retirement as he waved his final goodbye from the White House and was greeted by thousands as he arrived home in Orange County, California.
