The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum Opportunity

Consider having lunch before or after the workshop at the café next door to our workshop and a tour of the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum. It is one of thirteen national presidential libraries and right here in Atlanta! The Center features a permanent exhibition on the life and presidency of Jimmy Carter and the Museum features ongoing temporary exhibitions. As a visitor, you can step into an exact-sized replica of the Oval Office, decorated the way it was during the Carter Administration. You can experience, “A Day In the Life of the President” and see exquisite State Gifts and take a virtual trip with the Carters to fight disease and promote human rights as part of their work with the Carter Center. Tour the gift shop for souvenirs and books by President and Mrs. Carter all for a $10 fee.
