Part of the Presidential Library system administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. Through displays of room settings, objects, documents, photographs, audio, and video, visitors can acquire a close-up view of the modern American Presidency. Very rarely do guests to The White House even get to see the china collection, but visitors to the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum in February will be able to take a close look at plates used for State Dinners and presentation pieces given to U.S. Presidents. Based on the private collections of Mr. and Mrs. Set Momjian and President and Mrs. Carter, with pieces from the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site and the Rutherford Hayes Presidential Center, the exhibit "Diplomatic Patterns” will show a sampling of the china that was used for these important events. An on-site restaurant is open until 2:00 p.m
