It's such an honor to have the Carter Library and Museum in Atlanta. The museum is really well done and I especially enjoyed the oval office replica. Note: If you're really into museums and enjoy reading and interacting with exhibits make sure you go with...More

The Jimmy Carter library and museum is not just about Carter's presidency. It situates his four years as president into his life story (including his family life before, during and after the presidency and his active post-presidential public service), as well as the public context...More

With full disclosure that I'm no fan of the Carter presidency (although I admire his post-term humanitarian work), I thought the museum was very well done. The replica of the Oval Office and the multimedia presentation of a typical day of a presidential schedule were...More

Found out lots about a president I knew very little about, his early life, his presidency, the first family and the work of the Carter Center. Lots of interviews with President and Mrs Carter on screens around.

Never been to a Presidential Library before - expected a load of books, but far from it. There was a great video and then a museum charting the life of the former President, then a very neat set of files behind glass that presumably are...More

You can probably get through the museum in 1.5-2hrs. If you tour the grounds around it, it may take longer.
