Conejo Valley - Experience Life in Pompeii at the Reagan Presidential Library & Museum

Experience Life in Pompeii at the Reagan Presidential Library & Museum

If you haven’t been to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum yet, now is a great time to check it off your travel bucket list.

Whether you’re visiting Conejo Valley for the first time or you are a local looking for something new to see, the presidential library and museum is a special place – full of history, inspiration and information on the nation’s 40thpresident.

The special exhibits at the museum are another spectacular reason to visit. The museum regularly features unique exhibits that are worthy of a trip on their own, and the newest one is no exception. Beginning October 6, “Pompeii: The Exhibition” will be on display, and will run through April 2019.

This awe-inspiring exhibit will bring visitors back in time to the fateful eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., which covered the busy city of Pompeii and all its residents in volcanic ash, abruptly halting life as they knew it.

As archaeologists uncovered the remains of Pompeii and its people, they found that much of the site was frozen in time, preserved beneath layers of ash. Almost 200 authentic artifacts will be on display at “Pompeii” more than 2,000 years after they were buried. The exhibit will showcase everything from sculptures and frescoes to jewelry and ancient coins, and even full body casts and gladiator helmets. There will also be a simulated 4-D theater experience that allows visitors to see what it may have been like to witness the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

Meet Stanley at the Malibu Wine Safari!

Looking for an experience to make your visit to Conejo Valley more memorable? Look no further than the Malibu Wine Safari, which takes visitors on a wine tasting adventure through the thousand-acre Saddlerock Ranch and vineyard.

The wine may be great, but the company is even better. Saddlerock Ranch happens to be home to a number of retired animal celebrities who starred in countless Hollywood films, and now they are living the good life as visitors spoil them with attention.

One of the most popular animals on the safari is Stanley the Giraffe. This famous, friendly fellow loves to eat, take photos with new friends and get lots of good petting from visitors. When you book your safari tour, make sure you select the Giraffe Tour or the Vineyard & Lunch Tour – these are the two options that will bring you up close and personal with him.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when meeting Stanley:

  • Make a funny face in photos. Stanley likes people with personality!
  • If you don’t like animal kisses, keep your distance. Stanley’s giraffe tongue is big enough to lick his, or your, whole face.
  • Snacking is Stanley’s favorite activity, so if the guides allow you to feed him, make sure you have some giraffe-friendly snacks in your pocket!
  • Always, always give him some petting, or his feelings might get hurt.
  • Remember to be gentle and respectful of Stanley and all his celebrity pals!
