Even if you are not a fan of Jimmy Carter's presidency, I believe there is enjoyment to be had here. The museum is nice and there is a lot to see. It was cool to see all of the historical information, personal artifacts, documents, and the replica of the oval office. I am into history and especially presidential history, so this was quite fun for me. If you are as well, than this is a must next time you are in the area. Well worth the time.

Jimmy Carter's Presidential Library and Museum, like all presidential sites, is a thrill and privilege to visit. See all the documents, rare photos, personal family objects, the OVAL OFFICE! If you are in Atlanta or nearby, you won't want to miss the opportunity to view, study and appreciate the power and magnificence of our past Chief Exective.

In Atlanta for the day and took a trip to the Museum. Found it to be very interesting. A good place to just sit and think.

Went to the Presidential Library, no time to go to the Center. Location is on a bus line, pamphlet has good directions. SO MUCH to READ! I lived through this part of history...did I miss it? or too busy to notice it! As I went through the museum, I kept asking myself, did that really happen then? Great timeline & exhibits. Highly recommend, a don't miss attraction!
