  • I've never been to a presidential library and didn't know what to expect. The work of the Carter Center is impressive. It's likely President Carter has accomplished much more after he left the White H...  more »
  • Very disappointing experience. Little interactive opportunities unlike many similar destinations. Save your time for Atlanta's many other tourism options.  more »
  • I did not realize that Jimmy Carter (and his wife) had done so many wonderful things since he left the White House. I have been to many of the presidential museums and this one is a real gem.  more »

  • 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.
  • The Carter Center represents an American president whose foundation has taken millions upon millions of dollars over decades from ruthless Middle Eastern dictators. Google it and wonder why. On Jimmy Carter's last visit to Israel in 2015, he was denied a visit with the Israeli President due to Carter's long history of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic verbal attacks, including Carter's words during the last Gaza war during the shelling of Israel in 2014 by Hamas terrorists. His words have endangered Israelis and Jews around the globe. Why would you respect one of the worst US president's in our history? (go read it) Putting a sheen on Jimmy Carter through the Carter Center is a sham. Jesus would weep.
  • Beautiful gardens. Take a tour if you can!!
