  • My mom used to work here, used to being me here, it's awesome.
  • Have traveled to several of the President's libraries. The difference with the Carter Center is that it is a functioning center with a compassionate purpose. Wish we had more time to spend and explore. The grounds were beautiful and peaceful.
  • Nice setting for a large gathering but feels like your group has the place to itself, even though there are other gatherings on premise, too
  • Have not visited the Center because I live on the west coast now, but reviews sound wonderful and I will certainly visit if I go back to the East Coast. Didn't think much of him as president cannot comment on anything else, but can say his accomplishments since his presidency have been phenomenal. He has handled his life with grace and integrity. My hats off to him.
  • That is where my uncle works. I will call him if I am far away
