I am a long time supporter of President and Mrs. Carter and have taken quite a few people to the musuem over the years. While the grounds have always been lovely, the newly renovated musuem is a gret place to learn more about this amazing couple and the good work they have done-- before, during, and after the presidency. I have taken many out-or-town guests to the musuem and they always leave impressed at the breadth of their work. The renovations are more in depth, more hands-on, and offer more for older children and teens. The musuem shares the location with the Carter Center - the NGO founded by the Carters. Though I haven't seen them there, there are plenty of Atlantans with stories of seeing the Carters at the Center, walking the grounds, or with other famous leaders at the musuem, etc. Also, the musuem hosts lectures and book signings with some regularity (check the paper or the website).
The only down side is the public transportation link- it is not on the train route, so if coming by train, you have to transfer to the bus line.
