The school is now the visitor center for the site. The first floor is open and showcases items like his Nobel Peace Prize and official Presidential Portrait. Well worth the stop if you are in Plains!

While not a President Jimmy Carter fan (although I'm an ex-president Jimmy Carter fan) I enjoyed the museum and the small town of Plains. Plains is in the "middle of nowhere" but well worth the detour. We visited in early July, 2008 and it was...More
