Don't miss President Carter's papers! – My wife and I took a rainy day tour of the Carter Center. It was a day well spent. We really liked the travelling exhibit of gowns of the First Ladies in history. The museum layout is designed to make your self-guided tour of the facility simple to plan and follow. We ate in their cafeteria that has a pleasant atmosphere with a pleasing view of the grounds. The food was tasty and service was very friendly; we felt as if we were guests in the home of a hostess.
President Carter's papers are organized by the day of the year. Plan to read a day of President Carter's papers from the library. It is a very interesting collection of memos and correspondence. The facination is the mix of people who contact a President of the Untied States and the reasons they write to him. We plan on returning this spring...and will read papers from his library at the mid-point of our day there.
A detailed look at Georgia's greatest citizen and his path from peanut farmer to president to Nobel Peace Prize winner. – The Experience
Exhibits and memorabilia from Carter's early years, through his presidency and beyond, pack the center. The museum is an American history lesson showcasing monumental events of Carter's administration such as "Protecting the Future," "Hostage Crisis in Iran," and "Peace in the Middle East." Read original documents, confidential directives and peace treaties. View multimedia presentations that highlight negotiations with world leaders throughout the self-guided tour. The "Wall of Twentieth Century Presidents" pays homage to American leaders with excerpts from their most significant accomplishments, newspaper headlines, photographs and other unique artifacts.
Tour highlights include a replica of the Oval Office in the White House, complete with desk, couches and presidential seal. Listen as Carter, the 39th president, describes major decisions made in that office. Glass cases display exquisite gifts like a hand-woven wool tapestry of George Washington and a mineral set given by American citizens and foreign dignitaries.
a great man & president – I thoroghly enjoyed the museum. I thought they did a great job with the history of our presidential tradition and I liked the way they had the election, personal life & important treaties split up. I left wishing americans would have adopted his energy and foreign policy ideals with more fervor. He is a great man and I will always admire his accomplishments and vision.
Unique, relaxing – From the moment you pass through the main gates you feel and appreciate the beauty of the landscape, it sets the mood for the new thinks of history, community, social issues that you will always benefit from. All gather under one roof with the best and friendly staff, that is not a surprise to receive such a unique service coming from such an exlplendid person as President Jimmy Carter, his name signify positive effort to improve the society with his vast experience and good work.
