An American Christmas is back! Guests will enjoy a tour through our winter wonderland featuring 25 trees decorated to celebrate the defining moments of America’s road to greatness, from the Revolutionary Era to today. Each tree reflects the life and times of American society and culture during each decade between 1770 through 2010 and beyond, thus tracing the evolution of America. Through the use of lights, ornaments and decorations, each tree becomes its own piece of magnificent art. Also on display will be a collection of beautiful hand-crafted Menorahs that were given to President Reagan while in office.

Every story has a beginning, and ours starts with the 1770s.

Each tree is decorated with what is culturally historic and symbolic in each decade. Betsy Ross is there, embroidering the  first  American  flag. Newspapers blare  headlines from history. And an image of Ronald Reagan himself peeks out from one tree that celebrates a new era in the U.S. presidency.

The trees representing the 1700s feature copies of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill  of Rights. Other trees bear ornaments representing inventions, popular games and music, and wars. An 1890s tree has a Wright brothers model plane and the first telephone, while a 1970s tree has ornaments such as an eight-track tape and a shark representing “Jaws,” a popular movie at the time. The 1980s tree commemorates Ronald Reagan’s time as our nation’s 40th president, but it also celebrates the Cabbage Patch doll, Beanie Babies, Rubik’s Cube and personal computers.

Each tree is truly a work of art and every guest has a favorite.  Come explore the exhibit and find yours!

Admission prices to the Reagan Library include entry into both the Pompeii and An American Christmas special exhibitions.
