I had never visited a Presidential Library before and found this one to be very interesting. It gives a good understanding of the political process from running for president, inheriting any crisis the former president may have left, the challenges during your 4 years and then the process of trying to run for re-election while running the country. With Carter, it doesn’t end there. The museum is updated to include what he is involved with today. There is also ample information on Roselyn and her involvement with the White House. The museum is located on beautiful grounds with gardens, reflecting pools, waterfalls & ponds. I got through in 2 hours while reading some exhibits and skimming others. The library was not open on the Saturday that I was there.

I toured the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library. I did not think he was a good president but I was 13 when Gritz and Fritz were elected so this was very interesting to me. I got there in time to spend 2 hours before they closed at 4:45 PM. Lots of items and pictures from Jimmy’s childhood, early political races and a room devoted to his 1976 presidential campaign. There were areas that documented the Iran hostage crisis, energy crisis, SALT II treaty. Also on display are many gifts of state from foreign governments. There was a section devoted to famous photographers and their pictures. There were even pictures of the devastation caused by Katrina.
