Richard Nixon Library And Birthplace

The Richard Nixon Museum has opened a new half-million-dollar permanent exhibit about Watergate. The National Archives assumed control of the Museum in 2007, and has gradually shifted the Museum's emphasis from Nixon cheerleading and apology to something closer to the truth (The new Watergate exhibit, for example, replaces an old, boring one that insisted that Nixon was "in no way connected" to the break-in).

It's a sad day for fans amused by historical sanitation, but there should still be a few laughs preserved. The Museum continues to display the Nixon Banishment Helicopter and the handgun given to Nixon by Elvis.
