The Jimmy Carter Library and Museum houses President Jimmy Carter's papers and other material relating to the Carter administration and the Carter family's life.
Located on 35 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, the Carter Presidential Library is one of 13 presidential libraries in the United States administered by the National Archives. The award-winning museum features 2 to 4 national traveling exhibits a year.
The permanent exhibits highlight Carter's life and career. Visitors can experience a day in the life of the president, see exquisite state gifts, and take a virtual trip with the Carter Center on an interactive computer table.
You'll go around the world to fight disease and promote democracy. The museum is highly interactive and fun for the whole family. Visitors will not only learn about the Carters' work after leaving the White House, they'll see the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to President Carter for that work.
Oval Office: There is a replica of the Oval Office located inside the museum. That alone is worth the price of admission.
Beautiful Gardens: Take a stroll around the gardens surrounding the Presidential Library and Museum. There are sculptures, beautiful plantings, plus amazing views of the Atlanta skyline from the pond.
The Carter Library and Museum includes some parts that are owned and administered by the federal government, and some that are privately owned and operated.
The library and museum are run by the National Archives and Records Administration and are part of the Presidential Library system of the federal government.
Privately owned areas house Carter's offices and the offices of the Carter Center, a non-profit human rights agency.
The complex lies next to John Lewis Freedom Parkway, which was originally called "Presidential Parkway" (and at one point, "Jimmy Carter Parkway") in its planning stages.
The library and museum offer free admission to all students 16 and under. They can either go on a guided or self-guided tour.
Together the library and The Coca-Cola Foundation have established funding for the library to provide transportation funds for all Georgia schools to use when bringing students to the museum for education activities.
