The gardens are great for strolling, exceptionally planted. The center always has thoughtful agendas and the view of skyline Atlanta is superb. President Carter should be very proud as his legacy is told with a kindness and consideration for the good of mankind

The Carter Center offers a wonderful display on Jimmy Carter's life and presidency that is incredibly memorable and touching. I recommend that every visitor to Atlanta consider stopping by this place to enjoy both the exhibit and the beautiful landscaping and fountains.

I would like to say that my visit here opened my eyes to the great humanitarian work of Jimmy Carter and his family. Being from the UK I was not aware of the good work that they have achieved and continue to do so throughout the World. I was both moved and inspired by the displays and video footage and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at the Carter Center. The layout is easy to maneuver, and there is a great deal of information to be absorbed. The film clips and videos were well done, and one leaves with a great sense of the Carters contributions to our world.

One gets a real feel for the humanity that Jimmy Carter embodies! It is an understated library - in sharp contrast to the opulence of the Kennedy library in Boston.

The presidential library of the finest ex-president our nation has ever seen - the details of the Mideast Peace Accords between Sadat and Begin, the center of the Civil Rights movement, and of course, the founding of Habitat for Humanity all described in great detail. Lovely gardens, fascinating architecture, and a tribute to a giant among men.

We enjoyed the visit. This is the forth presidential library we have had the chance to visit and each one has been very special. The Carters have served both our country and the human race greatly. We owe them both a great deal of gratitude.

The museum is giant and I wish I would have had time to explore the gardens. I would budget 3 hours here, maybe more. There is a lot to read and watch.

You will be overwhelmed by the great number of photos and items in the museum. The Museum is entered through the Bookstore and the Theater adjoining the Bookstore. We were their in time for a short film that is an introduction to Carter's life. The first exhibition is to Carter's early life in Plains and his interest in the Navy.... More
