We were impressed with the museum. Though we hadn't voted for him, we still enjoyed the displays and realized what a great person he is. What he's done since his presidency to fight disease was very impressive as well. Nice grounds as well.

I confess that I had forgotten much about the events of Jimmy Carters Presidency. The exhibits are very well done and explain with video and many Carter interviews what was happening during those years. There are several things for kids to see and do so...More

True. They say it's because you wouldn't have time to see everything.
