Special Events at the Jimmy Carter Library & Museum

The Museum of the Jimmy Carter Library provides a unique experience for the visitor. Through displays of room settings, objects, documents, photographs, audio, and video, visitors can acquire a close-up view of the modern American Presidency.

Changing exhibits are drawn from the library and museum collections or are based on themes relating to the presidency and American political history. Many of these are traveling exhibitions from the Smithsonian Institution, other Presidential Libraries, and other museums around the world.
