In this photo taken Tuesday, July 21, 2015, smoke from the the Reynolds Creek wildefire rises above the landscape at St. Mary Lake in Glacier National Park, Mont.

“It’s all panels and photos and content. It’s good stuff, but it is just not up to par with what museums are like nowadays,” said Joe Lopez, a spokesman for the Richard Nixon Foundation, a private organization that supports the library.
