It's hard to eat peanuts without giving a thought to this man. He found so many uses for this plant. Not only that, he experimented with and developed products from many other plants such as, but not limited to, the sweet potato and soybean. He wasn't only a scientist but a teacher and artist. He had faith in a supreme... More

If you are in need of a "feel good story" or need to be inspired, this is the place to visit. Located on the beautiful Tuskegee Institute campus, this museum tells you the story of a man born to an enslaved couple who manages to become an inventor, a botanist, a chemist, a scientist and an artist. This man was... More

I had heard of the George Washington Carver Museum for many years but had never been there. After recently reading that the National Park Service had reopened after redoing the museum, we decided to visit. It is on the Tuskegee Institute campus in Tuskegee, AL. The small museum is very informative about this remarkable man. Before going there, I only... More

Visit this place! I enjoyed my visit. This man was a true scientist that pursued his passion for research and innovation with a constant recognition of the Creator who gave him wisdom to discover what every single thing created (like peanuts!) hides.

A small museum about George Washington Carver. Located on the beautiful Tuskegee University campus, which dates to 1881. If you can, visit both museums; they are located 5 miles from each other.

I had no idea of ALL the talents of Carver. Not only a scientist, he was also an artist. The museum offered us insights into his life that we had not known and were even more impressed with the great American who contributed so much to society. Its a must see place. And a great trip with children. Located on... More

I agree with the previous gentleman about not making a special trip. We did. It's interesting but not worth a 20 minute detour from I-85 specifically to see it. The campus is beautiful and if you have time you should walk around for the history. The information on Carver was good but you could probably learn as much or more... More

I visited this museum after coming from the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site (Tuskegee Airmen Museum) about 5 minutes away. The museum was average; I wouldn't make it a point to come to this museum as a primary destination.

we toured the museum, but we also saw the film on Carver. That really brought his story home. The museum has exhibits that will delight even small children. There is also a souvenir shop. You can actually hear Carver's voice on a mock telephone. We also got a chance to go on the tour of the historic Tuskegee campus. That... More

We were very disappointed not to see this museum as it is closed until October, 2013. Perhaps on another trip we will see the museum about the man who invented over 300 uses for peanuts, 100+ uses for sweet potatoes, etc.
