Really enjoyed this visit. Reminded me of many things I'd forgotten. The Camp David information was great as was the Iran hostage info. Well presented.

Carter's Museum seems to be 'tucked in' a beautiful park area. It is arranged well to give a brief history of his experiences as he grew up in a time of segregation and followed his career from the academy to the presidency.

Have been to the JFK and Nixon museums and this one wasn't as exciting. Some good information and the intro video was well worth it. For the price it was a good experience.

We probably would have skipped the library, but it was on our city tour. It was a beautiful facility, and very nicely done. We learned some personal things about Jimmy and Rosalynn that we had not known. We found some of the gifts from other...More
