Very disappointing experience. Little interactive opportunities unlike many similar destinations. Save your time for Atlanta's many other tourism options.

I did not realize that Jimmy Carter (and his wife) had done so many wonderful things since he left the White House. I have been to many of the presidential museums and this one is a real gem.

This was my second stop in my quest to visit all Presidential Libraries. The library was well organized and very educational. This is definitely worth the time!

We enjoy history and I admit it, we could not resist the temptation of joining the “Presidential Library Passport Club.” We have two stamps, WOO HOO, but so far we’ve enjoyed the journey and we are glad we decided to explore a “topic” that we...More

What a fine alternative to the conventional conference hall! Attractive, intimate setting in a stylish venue where you can feel the rich history of its namesake. Hope to visit there, again.
