It wasn't very busy the day we went so we could breeze right thru. The exhibits are interesting brought back memories of that time era.

Few folks end up in Plains, GA without the intention of being there, and seeing the 39th President's hometown and learning more about his presidency is probably high on most visitors' lists. The old high school is a great way to spend an hour or two and start the journey. The museum is simple--mostly photographs and descriptions--but it was a trip down memory lane and very informative. There are some wonderful quotes from President Carter and family, and the replica White House desk was a great photo op, and a nice bonus was his Nobel Peace Prize on display. There's a movie on his presidential election run that they play in the auditorium that we didn't have time for, but sitting in for a few minutes, looked like it was well done.

This former high school of the the Carters had been converted to a homage to the Carter legacy. Walk through a timeline from school to present. See artwork by Mr. Carter and pick of a book of gift at the gift shop. Admission is free.

This is the starting point to visit the Historic Site, and where children can get their booklets for the Junior ranger Program. After visiting the boyhood farm, and other local attractions, we returned to sit in Jimmy Carter's classroom to answer the questions that are part of the Junior Ranger program.

Historical artifacts from Jimmy’s school boy days, his youth and navy days, early years with Roslyn. His Nobel Prize is also on display. Great displays of his ride from peanut farmer to President. Lots and lots of info about his post-presidential activities with the Carter Center and Habitat for Humanity. He is an amazing figure but remains a humble man
