About the Carter Chronicle

The staff at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum started this blog because we would love the chance to engage with YOU!

Located in Atlanta, Georgia, the Jimmy Carter Library & Museum is part of the Presidential Library system administered by the National Archives and Records Administration, a Federal government agency.  The Library consists of an archives and a museum. The archives serves as a repository for approximately 27 million pages of historical textual material from the Carter Presidency, donated papers from individuals, and more. We also have a large audiovisual collection consisting of photographs, film, audio, and video tape. The Museum of the Jimmy Carter Library features a family-friendly exhibition that chronicles the lives of President and Mrs. Carter through interactive displays, historical memorabilia, documents, and photographs. Highlights include a life-size replica of the Oval Office, the “Day in the Life of the President” presentation, and a “touch” Map Table that allows visitors to travel virtually with the Carters on many Carter Center projects around the world.  The museum also offers traveling and temporary exhibits on a variety of topics throughout the year.  Housed in the museum collection are thousands of White House gifts that were given to the Carters along with political campaign materials, and family-related objects.
