  • Beautiful landscape and staff. I love transporting for the Carter Center and doing some photography there.
  • Do yourself a favor, and visit here whether you think you would like it or not. We just visited the Carter center for the first time. I have never been a fan of Jimmy Carter, and honestly wasn't very interested. The Carter Center changed my mind! Not only is the place very well laid out, the story of Jimmy Carter is riveting. Do yourself a favor, and look into a man with one of the worst presidential reputations, who has done surprisingly more for good, then I ever imagined. That being said, the museum is very well laid out, and all the subject matter inside is interesting and Interactive. I was shocked that even my seven-year-old had enough to do that was interactive to keep him occupied! There is a good flow to the museum, and the information is very positive! What a refreshing opposite from the norm. Do yourself a favor, and visit here whether you think you would like it or not. If you walk in with an open mind, you will not be disappointed!
