  • For being fairly tech savvy people, we struggled to find the exact location of the library. Poor signage and bad GPS. Once we got there, we really enjoyed our stay. Great outline of President Carters ...  more »
  • We stopped by and enjoyed reliving our childhood and learned more about the Carters but it just reminded me how the present administration has not learned enough history.  more »

  • Very interesting and worthwhile, especially gave insight into his contribution as President, e.g. His dedication to the release of the hostages in Iran, and his post presidency work for world peace and the health of society. A good man supported by a wonderful wife. I actually met him in the late 1980s.
  • Love visiting presidential libraries and this is one of the best although as he was a 1 term president there is much focus given to what has been accomplished since his presidency. I easily passed 4 hours in there and came away with a huge amount of respect for Carter as a person.
  • The Jimmy Carter Library & Museum is well done and you get a good picture about the life and times of Jimmy Carter. It also tells quite a bit about his life after he was president and as many of us know, he has done quite a lot after leaving office. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Atlanta area.
  • Not many of these around and we have one in Atlanta. If you want to feel what it is like being in the White House as President, visit this center. You can experience Jimmy Carter's Presidency.
  • Great exhibits and fascinating! To see everything allow for around 2.5 hours.
