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 might not have otherwise taken the time to educate ourselves. The Carter Center is impressive.... 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.

Nicely positioned in a pleasant park. The facilities are well maintained. We visited on a Sunday afternoon, perhaps a dozen other folks were there. Parking was free. Tickets to enter the museum are purchased at a modest gift shop. The library, I was told, is closed to the public. The cafe was closed when we were there, and looks like... More

I like visiting all presidential libraries. More of an adult thing. I found it awesome! It's a first class experience covering the presidency of Jimmy Carter. Highly recommended!

I enjoyed the Presidential library. Afterwards, I walked up to several entrances of the Carter Center, and determined that you can not visit the Center! The Carter Center It is a nonprofit public policy center founded by Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. And there is nothing to offer the tourist. Enjoy the Library, but do not expect to spend time at...

The museum is very well done. The outside is also very pleasing. A duplicate of the oval office when Carter was president is inside.

If you are visiting Atlanta, I would find something more interesting to do than this. Really not worth the visit, unless you are fascinated by stagflation, and how someone could achieve double digit interest rates, unemployment and inflation all at the same time. Think I'm exaggerating? Google it.
