If we are flying home or just whiling away a couple of hours for some other reason, its easy to find with lots of parking, nice toilets. We have visited all the Presidential Libraries, this is not the best, but its quietly enjoyable.

I have visited several Presidential Libraries & Museums and the Jimmy Carter location is good but not great. His childhood was interesting to learn about as well as his Naval background. One thing I wish they had displayed were some of his personal schedules when he was in office. I have seen this in other Presidential Library's and I find... More

Enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about Jimmy Carter that I didn't know. I was fairly young when he was president.

I spent the morning roaming around the museum with my friends and found it be be super enlightening. The whole experience was educational and made me want to delve further into that period in history.

Actually, I saw this Presidential Library and Museum about five years ago. I loved it then ... so much history. I will definitely go again.

This was interesting.... I enjoyed it and the atmosphere was good. I liked the artifacts, the video's were not my idea of history but still good. The gift shop was average.

Enjoyed this visit. The museum is excellent! The gardens are beautiful! Be sure and visit the gardens. Really enjoyed this visit! You don't even realize you are in Atlanta when you visit this place.

A very interesting Presidential museum. I didn't realise he had done so much post President, and the museum shows all his very good qualities after he left office. Also been to Kennedy Museum in Boston - which was similar, but we came away with a whole new outlook on the "Peanut Farmer". Very good - involving a lot of history... More

I am a history buff so for me this was a fun time. I did not go with my young son. I got autographed photos of both Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter. I learned things I didn't know. Had a great time.

I was invited last minute to a trip over to the Jimmy Carter Library. I had no idea that we were being greeted by the man himself! We were lucky enough to have meet him and hear about all his great programs.
