Exhibits about and memorabilia from the Carter administration.
Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale
Jimmy Carter was the 39th President of the United States, serving from 1977 to 1981. Originally hailing from Plains, Georgia, after his Presidency, Carter sought to build a Presidential library and museum someplace in his home state. The Jimmy Carter Museum & Library is located in Atlanta, Georgia about two miles from downtown. Both a research library and museum are open to the public. The library contains all kinds of texts related to Carter and his wife and other figures from his presidency. Though not all of the material is open to the public, researchers with a clear goal should be able to get permission to look through the many resources.
The Jimmy Carter Museum may be of more interest to those who do not have research in mind but simply want to learn more about the President or the White House in general. The Museum contains displays about the life of Carter, his Presidency, and his family and other pursuits. There is also a replica of the Oval Office which visitors can walk though. Various other displays are also open, such as gifts from heads of state given to the Carters.
