“Disappointing”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Have been to almost all presidential libraries and this one, together with the Clinton one, were the worst. Very arrogant exhibition. Carter takes credit for everything good that happened in the 1980s and 1990s. His good work for global development, however, is undisputed. The surrounding garden is nice though. Would not return to this one.

The grounds are very beautiful but the building could be kept up better! Very well laid out and informative, the mock oval office was great and very accurate!!

“Jimmy Carter Japanese Garden”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Been to Jimmy Carter Museum many times since the opening in October 1986, but today Wednesday, 16April 2014, it glowed. Before the spring rain comes pay a visit. A wonderful place to forget the buzz of the city and look at the skyline admid the dogwoods, evergreens, and azaleas. Would love to go on a landscape tour of the Jimmy Carter Center. Great place for an Easter visit. The Koi are huge. It is a birdwatcher's heaven. It is a horticulture treasure. An outdoor place family and friends can enjoy. No fee to see gardens. Also interesting gift shop.

Took our two granddaughters here on a field trip and it was an excellent addition to their history course they were taking as homeschoolers.

“Carter Library”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

It is best to visit when there is a conference going on so that you chances of seeing some important international guests is heightened. A brief visit is all that is needed...but we love the restaurant and theatre district around the Library
