  • 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.
  • A beautifully maintained library. The articles and photos tell a great story about former President Jimmy Carter. The grounds are stunning and the pond behind the library adds a sense of peace. Additionally there is a wall located on the property that yeild panoramic views if the city if you can hoist yourself up on it.
  • 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.
