About the Museum:

The National Archives in College Park maintains a small number of reference copies of Nixon White House Tapes and White House Communications Agency (WHCA) videotapes for viewing. The main holdings for the library are housed at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, California.

Watergate: In February 1971, President Nixon began secretly taping conversations and telephone calls in several locations, including the Oval Office, his office in the Old Executive Office Building, the Cabinet Room, and Camp David.

There are 2,636 hours of tapes containing conversations from February 1971 through July 1973 open to the public at the College Park Nixon Libary. Some of these tapes, including those relating to Watergate, can be heard online.
