Staff was very friendly and the exhibits were well done. It was not very busy allowing the young lady working there to spend time with us which made the visit seem more personal.

George Washington Carver's light highlights the accomplishments of a man who had nothing, but was blessed to be placed in a situation where he was encouraged to learn. He walked alone in the woods and was inspired to use the peanut for so many things. He and Booker T. Washington taught farmers how to maximize their crop output wit a... More

We enjoyed learning about the history of George Washington Carver, his inventions and seeing his home. Our older teens as well as the younger ones were thrilled to purchase a peanut plant. We took it home and planted it Ina pot and it bloomed! Us adults took time to read each detailed report.

There's so much to know about George Washington Carver, and this museum teaches you a lot about his ideas and inventions. There's a great 20 minute video downstairs and exhibits covering much of his life. Not the easiest place to find (it is off W Montgomery but inside the Tuskegee campus) since the campus security guard did not mention where... More

What a great tribute to a special man, who was a genius and developed many items from peanuts and sweet potatoes that we take for granted today, lots of interesting exhibits with plenty of information about the man.

There needs to be better signage to direct you here, but museum is well worth a visit. Had heard of Carver's work with peanut but there was so much more. He taught at Tuskegee for decades. The information about his efforts to teach farmers about crop rotation and other techniques is well presented. The video on his life could be... More

I have understood for a long time the significance Carver made to the food we eat today. This museum just expanded that understanding. Not that big, but had a lot of information. Great history, worth the stop. Nice walk around the campus.

Thank DGoat
