If you want to brush up on American history all you have to do is hop on the Ventura County Line to Simi Valley – home of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

The Library is a self-guided collection of exhibits that tells the story of the 40th President of the United States.

The Library is currently hosting a traveling exhibit, Genghis Khan: The Exhibition, which shows how Khan was a revolutionary during his time with innovations such as pants, the pony express, cannons, paper money skis and violins.  This is the only Southern California stop on its international tour and runs through August 19.
