Visiting the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home



As a result of generous supporters, admission is now free for those who wish to learn and be inspired by the humble yet moving stories that shaped Ronald Reagan into one of America’s most beloved presidents.

Admission consists of a pre-tour film that details President Reagan’s family and environment in the 1920 and 30’s and the docent-guided tour of his boyhood home. 


Tour Length

Tours take approximately one hour.



Visitors may use our parking lot located on the corner of S Galena Ave and W 9th St. Additionally, there is free and convenient motor coach parking with easy access for travelers leaving and entering the coach in front of our park on S Hennepin Ave.


We are always seeking inspiring and motivated individuals who would like to leave a lasting impression on visitors and instill them with the stories and values that shaped President Reagan into the man we all know and love.

If you or someone you know would like to become a docent or volunteer at the Reagan Boyhood Home, please contact us and let us know about your interests.
