“Mr President!”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

This is a very nice exhibit for people who are intrested in the history of the Carters and all that they have accomplished. The library is nice. I was just a little bored, no wow factor for me.

“My 1st Snow Day in Atlanta”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

For 6$ as a student this was a good way to spend the day alone on a snow day. I found it informative and now have a new found admiration for Jimmy Carter. Some may find it boring but it is quick to walk through.

“Relaxing 90 minutes, Educational”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

I visited with my 15 year old son. A great walk through history.
While I do not think President Carter was a great president, he certainly was not our worst president. Regardless, a great man in many ways who has made the most of his life. He has done a lot of good since his presidency as shown in the exhibits.
Roselyn is also featured prominently at this museum.
A good learning experience for my son.

“An Atlanta treasure too few people take advantage of.”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Put politics aside and visit the Carter Center. It provides unique access to American history and its museum has recently been updated. There are relatively few presidential museums in the country and we are lucky to have one of them right here in Atlanta. And you'll also learn about the important work done by the Center supporting democracy and fighting disease around the world. Finally, the Center is one of Atlanta's most beautiful venues for weddings- really! Our daughter's wedding took place there and it could not have been more beautiful.
