From Peanut Farmer to POTUS – Learning about his Legacy from the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library in Atlanta, GA

I love incorporating museums into my travels and during my trip to Atlanta I bookmarked the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum. as one of my destinations. I didn’t know too much about this former POTUS and was really surprised about the contributions he and the first lady made in helping our country particularly Rosalynn’s work calling for mental illnesses to be covered by insurance just like physical illnesses.

During my visit, I spent around 2.5 hours wandering the exhibit reading all the plaques and studying the various artifacts and sets. Jimmy Carter is best known for growing up on a peanut farm and facilitating a peace treaty between Israel and Egypt at Camp David during his presidency.  After watching various short clips regarding the Camp David Accord, I can safely say that I wouldn’t be capable of mediating that hostile intervention – he’s incredibly brave to take on such a monumental task!

As a lover of learning, I opted for the Family Membership ($40), which allows me to bring up to 3 guests and visit any Presidential Libraries and Museums across the United States.  With a day adult admission costing $8 (at the Carter museum) and my plan to visit at least two others in 2019 this deal seemed like a no brainier.  I can’t wait to exercise this membership in other states.

What presidential library would you be most eager to visit? (Reagan, Clinton, Bush etc?)

 

XOXO,

Rockstar
