Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum Review

This complex occupies the site where Union General William T. Sherman orchestrated the Battle of Atlanta (1864). The museum and archives detail the political career of former president Jimmy Carter. The adjacent Carter Center, which is not open to the public, focuses on conflict resolution and human-rights issues. Outside, the Japanese-style garden is a serene spot to unwind. Both Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter maintain offices here.

    Presidential library in a lovely setting

    This is Jimmy Carter's presidential library and museum, set in a very attractive hilltop area with a view of Atlanta's skyline. The outside consists of a lovely and extensive garden space. Inside are exhibits about Carter's presidential term and accomplishments (as well as his election campaign and pre-presidential career), gifts from foreign dignitaries, and a room replicating the Oval Office when he was there. A bit of a bus ride away from the MARTA stop, but worth finding.
