I have been to the High Museum many times and have seen some great exhibits. I was disappointed this visit. Large parts of the museum were closed for exhibit installation. Check before you go. It may not be worth the time.

Didn’t vote for him. Always knew he was a good man though. Came away thinking I am glad he was President. Even did more afterwards. Been to 4 President’s Libraries....better than most.

We began to understand president Carter after a visit to this lovely museum and picturesque grounds. The admission was reasonable (free for under 16). There were a lot of artifacts from the Carters as well as several informative films.

This presidential library is very visitor friendly and really gives you insight into a difficult period in American history. Ample parking and well done exhibits make this a must visit if you have time.

I am not one to linger in these museums, but I am also not one who runs through. I think 2 hours is a good amount of time here. I really enjoyed it.
