  • We attended Strange Saturday highlighting the Ga Film Exhibit. Loved all of it! They had Leopold’s ice cream for sell in the gift shop that you can normally only get in Savannah. The event was well organized and the film exhibit was fun. It was also neat to see the Oval Office from when he was in The White House. Adults are $12, children (the age is pretty high) are free. Definitely go see the Ga Film Exhibit.
  • Love why this building was made! Incredible history not only about Jimmy Carter but about the United States. The grounds are also beautiful, we got some family pictures taken there! They even have a revolving exhibit in the museum, when I went it was props from tv shows in movies filmed in Georgia, like Stranger Things, Avengers, The Walking Dead, Remember the Titans.
