Reviews / Entertainment

Step into the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum for a low-key walk through presidential history. Unlike other nearby museums, enveloping you in exhibits, the well-paced Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum features a look at Carter’s life before, during and after his presidency.

 

A popular exhibit includes a duplicate of the oval office from Carter’s presidency, as well as his ongoing work to preserve democratic election standards and monitoring. Visitors can also watch a short screening of Day in the Life of the President on 13-foot screens and walk through a cabin setting for historic Camp David Meetings. Ongoing events are also available at the Carter Center, including film screenings, lectures and author meet and greets.

 

Outside, a tranquil Japanese garden and koi pond entices visitors to take a brief stroll along the trails. The tucked-away Rose Garden features more than 40 varieties of flowers, including the coral Rosalynn Carter. Sculptures include “Sightless Among Miracles” to honor the Carter Center’s work to control or eliminate river blindness disease.

 

Although the museum is open to the public, the rest of the Carter Center is reserved for historians and approved personnel who wish to access the archives and other materials. Guests hoping to use the archive center can fill out an application for approval.

 

The Jimmy Carter Presidential Museum is open 9 a.m.–4:45 p.m. ,Monday through Saturday, and noon–4:45 p.m. on Sunday. Library hours run 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
