  • 3 years ago, when I visited this place, I questioned something to the employee. The person was very surprised at me and asked why you want to enter the library? Almost her face was that I am ready to call police man....I re-asked her, that is not the public library? She laughed and answered that is the research institution, not public library. Yes, you can only enter the museum. The library is a research center. However, the museum is really great! You can see the former president' history and imitated white house, and very impressive artworks. Also the garden is really wonderful.

  • Great experience and very informative. Staff was friendly and helpful. I paid $8 for single adult admission. The grounds are free and open to the public, so anyone could just enjoy the grounds without going to the mission, but I recommend the museum. The grounds are even open after the museum is closed. The library is for research only and not open on the weekends. It's not just full of insight into the lives of President Carter and First Lady Carter, but also a number of antiques bequeathed to them by various world leaders. Enjoy!

  • This place is pretty awesome. I am a pretty big fan of Jimmy Carter. This is not only because of what he did during his presidency but what he has done since. The library, museum, and the Carter Center only continue his legacy. The museum is very reasonably priced. It features a very good documentary about President Carter and his wife. I learned a lot of stuff that I did not know about him. The museum has tons of artifacts from his and his wife’s lives. They have truly done a lot for this country and the international community. There was a beautiful exhibit on the faces of Vietnam that definitely put some things into perspective. I loved it, and would definitely like to come back again. The only thing that I would have like more is to meet President Carter since he was going to be there later in the evening for an event.

  • I love visiting presidential libraries! This one was engaging and was a wealth of information on former president Carter. There was a good blend of facts, quotes and engaging antidotes. Enjoyed my time toking at the temporary Vietnam photography display as well.

  • Pleasantly surprised at the museum and beautiful park like setting. I spent over an hour in July in the exhibits. There’s a little introductory movie as well. Also, a cute little gift shop and a restaurant to grab a bite before you leave.
