There’s a reason presidential libraries are a boon to academics and historians—they’re a veritable archival wonderland. The Carter Library and Museum is no exception, but also engages the broader public in an accessible way. In addition to permanent displays of photos and memorabilia from the Carter presidency and an exact replica of the Oval Office, through October 2017, you can check out an exhibition which explores efforts to eradicate and control disease throughout history (a nod to the Carter-Center campaign to eliminate Guinea worm). Plus, they have incredible programming—a lecture from Michael Erik Dyson and a talk with Trayvon Martin’s parents are just two examples this upcoming month.
