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 two to four national traveling exhibits a year. The permanent exhibits highlight Carter's life and career. Visitors can step into an exact replica of the Oval Office, experience a day in the life of the president, see exquisite state gifts, and take a virtual trip with the Carter Center on our half-million-dollar interactive computer table. You'll go around the world to fight disease and promote democracy. The re-designed 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.
