Anyone with an appreciation of history will like the Carter Museum. A lot of it will be new to young people, and for the rest of us, it is a nostalgia trip.
You have to park quite a distance away, so if there are mobility problems, I'd call ahead to see if they can help you.
The shop is small and unimaginative. The cafeteria is OK, but the garden outside is lovely and a good place to sit for a break.

This was interesting. I thought I already knew (remembered) a lot about President Carter, but I learned so much more touring through the Carter Museum. Mrs Carter was an amazine woman too.

I thought the library showing Carter's life and achievements was very well arranged. I learned things I didn't know and enjoyed the exhibit.

If you are into history this is a place for you to visit. There are alot of photos of Presidential archives and a replica of the Oval Office. It's inexpensive. Knid of boring if you are not into politics. I have teens and they walked through, looked everything over and were ready to leave shortly after we got there. I would reccomend this place for mature adults.

Presidential Museums give you a great look into the life of the individual and the history of the times. The Carter Library and Museum is no exception. You can easily go through this museum in 1 to 2 hours. Seeing the Noble Peace Prize was an added bonus. The grounds around the museum are beautiful. This was also the site of some Civil War action. While the area was not preserved, they do a nice job of having signs that describes what took place. Definitley glad I went.
