The Carver museum was a great find and learning opportunity. A student of history, I learned even more at the museum, and the information presented offered young and old alike a peek at the life, achievements, and work of Dr. Carver. The exhibition was well curated and offered a great mix of information, artifacts, and exhibition pieces. The exhibit includes... More

I never realized how brilliant George Washington Carver was until visiting this museum. It is small but does a great job in detailing his genius and diverse talents. (I never knew he was an artist and created his own paints & paint combinations.) Make sure you stop at Tuskegee and see this museum. You'll feel like you've really learned something... More

Seeing the brilliant work and to hear his actual voice giving a speech was wonderful. Enjoyed seeing the experiments and how many things could come from the peanut!

The Carver museum is free. They have all of the inventions and ideas he brought forth. They also have the farming and agriculture items he invented. I was surprised at how much he actually did. Most folks only remember the peanut but various dies and paints he discovered.

Had to stop at the National Parks building just off the Tuskegee University campus to find out where to go. The museum is on campus. Very interesting man such vision!

The staff here at the newly renovated museum were, as stated below, A+++++++++++. The exhibit is modest in size but very informative, Afterwards, the staff at the museum were extraordinarily generous in taking our questions—visitors to the museum clearly come with many different perspectives, interests, and questions, and the staff encouraged us to voice ours.

Since I was a child, I have long been one of many George Washington Carver's admirers. It was a special experience to visit this museum to keep his memory alive. As is often the case with the smaller NPS sites, the staff were A++++ Through our conversation, they gave us rich learning experience. It is only a few miles off... More

This is a great, educational museum and does an excellent job of explaining George Washington Carver's life and his contributions to society. Not only did Carver study the peanut and sweet potato, but he also studied soil at length, soybeans, mushrooms and rocks to name a few. He was a great educator, inventor, researcher, painter and humanitarian. If in the... More

Visiting this museum is definitely worthwhile. I knew a little bit about George Washington Carver from school, and I'd visited a museum that Dothan, Alabama has for him. I didn't know there was more to the man than "just" being a scientist... for instance, did you know that George Washington Carver was actually a pretty good painter? On display here... More

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
