After landing in the Los Angeles airport and picking my rental car up, I went to see President Nixon grave. After paying to get into the library, you can watch a movie that they show every half hour or you can go thru the museum. If you want, you can go right to the grave and birthplace. Since I had about 25 min's or so before the next showing of the movie, I just went right to the grave and birthplace. The birthplace is right where it was when he was born and everything in the house is original. It was either after he moved or after someone passed away, but everything was put into storage and brought out and put back the way it was when he moved. Also on the library grounds, they have the helicopter that he used while in office and it was the same one that he used when he left office. It looks like it did when he left office. One of the exhibits that they have they showed items from his and Mrs. Nixon funeral. They have news coverage of his along with letters of get well after he had the stroke to letters after he had died. They also have one of the gun casing that they use for the 21 gun salute.
