Carter Library and Museum

This was my second stop in my quest to visit all Presidential Libraries. The library was well organized and very educational. This is definitely worth the time!

I absolutely love presidential history! I have a goal to visit every presidential library and museum in America and I'm almost there. I grew up in Georgia and was so excited to visit the renovated Carter Library. I was a little let down, though. The grounds are gorgeous, but the museum felt like a well played science fair exhibit than... More

We enjoy history and I admit it, we could not resist the temptation of joining the “Presidential Library Passport Club.” We have two stamps, WOO HOO, but so far we’ve enjoyed the journey and we are glad we decided to explore a “topic” that we might not have otherwise taken the time to educate ourselves. The Carter Center is impressive.... More

What a fine alternative to the conventional conference hall! Attractive, intimate setting in a stylish venue where you can feel the rich history of its namesake. Hope to visit there, again.

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 enjoyed the Presidential library. Afterwards, I walked up to several entrances of the Carter Center, and determined that you can not visit the Center! 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...
