  • Knew very little about president Carter before our visit and left with a good appreciation for this former president. Very nice museum and grounds. A lot to look through, if you are the type that like...  more »
  • Museum very full, enjoyable visit. There you can see the Nobel Prize given to the President. I went in the morning and there were few people.

  • Our group spent 1.5 hours there, but could have done more if we had the time. The temporary exhibit (until Dec 15) on illnesses had displays on many sicknesses (many of which I had never heard of) and...  more »

  • Several years ago I received a very nice Christmas card from President Carter. I have no idea how he knows who I am or how he got my home address. I have never met him or tried to contact him ever. But it was a nice gesture. I would consider meeting him if he wanted to meet me. I would also accept a signed book.
  • Beautiful facility. I like that it's by the Belt Line trail.
  • Nifty little museum, made me respect this president a lot more. He'll also sign any of his books and mail it back to you if you leave it and fill out a form. Beautiful walking grounds around the museum.
  • Had a great experience here. Go here to learn some neat things and meet some great folks.
  • While I'm quite fond of President Carter and everything he stands for, including his unapologetic Christian attitude, I'm quite certain he would be disappointed to learn that some of the people he has entrusted to staff and run his wonderfully conceived organization are "nothing" like him.... when people present themselves there to be considered for employment and desiring to be apart of his ( Carter's) vision , they are met with indifference and hostility. Not at all representative of the man and woman who founded the center. Quite sad and ironic.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
