Nicely positioned in a pleasant park. The facilities are well maintained. We visited on a Sunday afternoon, perhaps a dozen other folks were there. Parking was free. Tickets to enter the museum are purchased at a modest gift shop. The library, I was told, is closed to the public. The cafe was closed when we were there, and looks like... More

I like visiting all presidential libraries. More of an adult thing. I found it awesome! It's a first class experience covering the presidency of Jimmy Carter. Highly recommended!

The Carter Center It is a nonprofit public policy center founded by Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. And there is nothing to offer the tourist. Enjoy the Library, but do not expect to spend time at...

The museum is very well done. The outside is also very pleasing. A duplicate of the oval office when Carter was president is inside.

If you are visiting Atlanta, I would find something more interesting to do than this. Really not worth the visit, unless you are fascinated by stagflation, and how someone could achieve double digit interest rates, unemployment and inflation all at the same time. Think I'm exaggerating? Google it.

My friend and I spent a morning enjoying the center. It was so informative, and so well laid out. We really enjoyed our time at the Carter Center. We also enjoyed a pleasant lunch out in the garden area.
