The Carter Presidential Library and Museum is the place to know President Jimmy Carter’s life. I was very interested to learn everything from his childhood from his presidency, and all his humanitarian work post presidency. We need our leader like President Carter who promote peace and health in the world. The Museum ground is beautiful, peaceful, has city skyline in the background. Lunch in the museum had the comfort and simplicity for whole family.

I went to the museum after arriving early on a flight to Atlanta. It was a rainy day, but the museum staff were helpful. The introductory film helped to put the museum in context. I'm old enough to have remembered the Carter administration as a youngster, and as a college professor teaching US history I often focus on the disfunction of the late 1970s, I came to have a better appreciation of the genuine decency of Jimmy Carter, especially after his presidency. The museum helped me rethink my lecture on the Carter administration, but also to bring up the role of past presidents in the 21st century.

Carter left the office of President, but never left the people. While other former presidents take the lecture circuit, he took a hammer and built homes. He definitely earned his Nobel Peace Prize, which is displayed here. His wife of 70+ years was his constant companion. His life from his humble beginnings to his life today is well chronicled in this well designed museum

Even though this is a presendential library, it is a tribute to both President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter. This is the epitome of what a team is suppose to be about. How often does one get to visit a presidential museum? So tae advantage of how close this is to downtown ATL. It has been recently updated, so enjoy yourself.

By pure luck we were driving by and saw this place. I've been to a couple other presidential libraries before so I couldn't pass up going into this one. This library is co-located with the Carter Center. So there is plenty of parking. There's a small fee to enter and from what I could tell, I believe the facility is ADA compliant. There is lots of history and information about President Carter from his humble beginnings thru his later years. Unfortunately, part of the library was closed on the day we were visiting...for remodeling I think. There's a short video to begin your self guided tour. There are also several other video monitors throughout the library. Bring your glasses as there are numerous documents and displays throughout the library. Now I think the other two libraries (Kennedy & Reagan) that I visited were better...but that's just my opinion. You might find this one better. If you're looking to kill some time or love this kind of history, this would be a good choice for you.
