The Carter Center, in partnership with Emory University, is guided by a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering; it seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.

While the program agenda may change, The Carter Center is guided by five principles:

*The Center emphasizes action and results. Based on careful research and analysis, it is prepared to take timely action on important and pressing issues.

*The Center does not duplicate the effective efforts of others.

*The Center addresses difficult problems and recognizes the possibility of failure as an acceptable risk.

*The Center is nonpartisan and acts as a neutral in dispute resolution activities.

*The Center believes that people can improve their lives when provided with the necessary skills, knowledge, and access to resources.

*The Carter Center collaborates with other organizations, public or private, in carrying out its mission.

  • 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.
  • Love the Vibe! Great variety of food options. Beautifull building.

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.
