Not only was this an overview of Jimmy Carter and his life, but it was also an excellent view of the American culture in the 70s and 80s. Definitely worth a visit.

This Carter Library provides fascinating insight in the Carter years. Although Jimmi Carter served only one term, the museum has several interesting artifacts and during our visit there was also an exhibition of photos by Yousuf Karsh.
