Nicely positioned in a pleasant park. The facilities are well maintained. We visited on a Sunday afternoon, perhaps a dozen other folks were there. Parking was free. Tickets to enter the museum are purchased at a modest gift shop. The library, I was told, is closed to the public. The cafe was closed when we were there, and looks like... More

If you are visiting Atlanta, I would find something more interesting to do than this. Really not worth the visit, unless you are fascinated by stagflation, and how someone could achieve double digit interest rates, unemployment and inflation all at the same time. Think I'm exaggerating? Google it.

My friend and I spent a morning enjoying the center. It was so informative, and so well laid out. We really enjoyed our time at the Carter Center. We also enjoyed a pleasant lunch out in the garden area.

I do enjoy visiting historical place. The Carter Center is one of them. I do wish I could meet the man but after his presidency he is an outstanding global citizen. Take your family and friends here.
