Having just visited another presidential library, found the contrast very interesting - truly depicts the wide range of personalities that hold our highest office. Found this a very good depiction of President Carter and all that he stood/stands for - truly a humanitarian.

You can probably get through the museum in 1.5-2hrs. If you tour the grounds around it, it may take longer.
