Sep 17, 2013 - Jimmy Carter Library & Museum
Said to be one of the most interesting, enlightening and amazing Presidential museums in the country, the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum is definitely a place that you should visit, if you have not been there before. It would also be an excellent idea to charter an Atlanta bus and bring your whole family there to visit and learn about the life of the country’s 39th President.
For many visitors to the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum in the Atlanta charter bus, they feel so privileged to be able to visit the museum that houses his private and official papers during his time in office. In fact, one of the best parts about the museum is the full scale replica of the Oval Office, which many visitors enjoy, as it would not be possible for the public to be able to enter into the real thing. If this is your first visit to the museum with your family members, it would be a good idea to give yourselves at least two hours to leisurely walk through the museum. After all, it would not be fun to come all the way to the museum and rush through the tour, would it? And if you are planning to visit with your family, surely you want to give ample time for your kids to learn as they tour the museum – who knows, they may even learn a thing or two about the life of the 39th President that they probably do not get to read about in their books in school.
Before you call up the Atlanta charter bus company to book a bus for the trip, do note that the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum are open from Mondays right through to Saturdays from 9am until 4:45pm and on Sundays, it is open from noon right up to 4:45pm. They are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s days. However, the library is only open from Mondays to Fridays, 8:30am until 4:30pm and is closed on all Federal holidays. Before you and your family members enter into the museum, you will notice that it has a beautiful garden entrance that leads to the building and the museum is nicely laid out and as you walk through the museum, you will see the life of Jimmy Carter – beginning from his early childhood to how he got involved with politics, his campaigns, presidency and then his charitable works. What better way to learn about the life of our past presidents if not through a museum such as this?
