Jimmy Carter Library And Museum - Review
President Carter was quite the fixture here in Atlanta, so it’s only fitting that the city has an entire museum devoted to him. Yes, this is a museum in function. It contains the Carter’s Nobel Peace Prize, a replica of the Oval Office, a copy of the Resolute desk, 27 million pages of documents; 500,000 photos, and 40,000 objects, along with films, videos, and audiotapes – covering everything from the presidency to the lives of the Carter Family.
The National Archives and Records Administration manage it. Arranged beautifully according to a timeline, the exhibit is best visited once you have a clear idea of what you’re here for, because you’ll never get through all the documents! There’s even a Grammy!

Jimmy Carter Library And Museum, Atlanta Reviews
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.
What a great way to spend a few hours! We only came here because we realized it was a short walk from where we were staying, the Highlands Inn, and we'd never been to a Presidential library before. So glad we did! The tickets were very reasonable, the grounds were beautiful and even though one of us was not a huge Carter fan, it was so informative, and so well presented, it gave food for thought about that opinion! The full size replica of the Oval Office was smaller than I had imagined it, but it was still a great thing to see. We didn't really use the gift shop or the restaurant as we had other things on our agenda. All in all a highly recommended place.
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.
Worth visiting, tons of wonderful exhibits, replica oval office of President Jimmy Carter, cost $6 entry for students. Early life and presidential carreer of Jimmy Carter and his wife is exhibited here. Contemporary U.S diplomatic history and federal documents are archived here as part of the attached library. Upon request, librarian gives you an overview of the archive and show it from outside, if you want to access it you have to submit official request.
Really enjoyed the library and was a learning experience for all things about President Carter. The replica Oval Office was also pretty cool. Lots of hands on exhibits to learn more. Has a nice gift shop and a theatre also.
