Where is Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum?
Jimmy Carter was not only the president of the USA, but previously the governor of Georgia. In Atlanta, the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum shows how he steered the fortunes of the USA from 1977 to 1981 – and continues to stand up for human rights today. Even in his home village of Plains you can meet the Great Old Man of American politics.
The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum traces a highly unusual life path: from the son of a peanut farmer to the governor’s office in Georgia and the US presidency to the tireless commitment to democracy and human rights as a former President.
His time in the White House is covered by the exhibition A day in the life of the President. Using video technology, it shows a typical working day from getting up at half past six in the morning until the late evening hours. When the president was out of the world, he worked in the Oval Office. Visitors see a faithful replica in the Museum.
