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. They were very engaging and... More

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

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.
