The Carter Center is a tribute to it's namesake, President Jimmy Carter. They have several different exhibits & tours available, all are very interesting! They also have beautifully manicured grounds, that would be perfect for a picnic or stroll.

This is the 8th Presidential Library we have visited. Regardless of your politics, you should visit every one of the 13 libraries/museums that our now open. This was probably the prettiest as far as the grounds. However, the visit inspired me to learn and appreciate...More

We visited the carter center and truly enjoyed the visit. The setting is exactly reflective of the man himself, set in a peaceful garden with lots of trees and reflective of the tranquillity of the mission. Loved it and would donate to it.

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.
