YORBA LINDA, Calif. (AP) — The museum dedicated to Richard Nixon's presidency is getting a makeover.

The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum said Monday that the galleries in California's Orange County are getting a $25 million upgrade to add more audio and video features and interactive touchscreens common to most modern museum exhibits to appeal to younger, tech-savvy visitors.

The galleries have been little changed since the museum opened in 1990, except for an exhibit on the Watergate scandal that opened in 2011.

The current exhibits are scheduled to close Sept. 28 and reopen in fall 2016.
