  • Like many others that posted here, I was blown away by how incredible this place was. Sure, Jimmy Carter may not have been a very effective President, but he and his wife are two of the most decent humans to ever live, and especially two of the most charitable and genuine people to have been in the White House. Carter was by far most effective in his post presidency work, which is remarkable. The museum is full of awesome features, even for kids, including a very cool replica of the Oval Office. The gardens are spectacular, just topping off such a well done site. If you’re in Atlanta, you will not regret stopping here for a couple of hours!!
  • Beautiful landscaping, wonderful area. Went on a Saturday so the farmers market was there. Picked up some fresh fruit on my way out. The lobby is large and spacious. Will be coming back soon to watch Georgia on my Screen!!
