This was a very interesting experience. I didn’t know much about Jimmy Carter before visiting here. The exhibit area is very large and packed full of information and historical artifacts. The highlight was the Oval Office reproduction. Jimmy’s activism regarding civil rights was very impressive...More

We are on a Presidential Library kick this year. I liked this PL. Mr. Carter only served 4 years so it delves not only into his presidency but his humanitarian work after office. The PL is not slow and sluggish like a lot of museums....More

This is a lovely thirty acre facility located just minutes from downtown Atlanta; it is beautifully landscaped and is peaceful and serene. For those of us who experienced the 1960-1990 period, it especially offered a wonderful look back in time. There is abundant parking, a...More

We have visited several Presidential libraries, some a lot bigger than the Jimmy Carter one but think this is my favourite so far. It gives a real insight to a side of President Carter that as someone from outside of the US was not aware...More
