We very much enjoyed this monument. It was very enlightening and educational. Movie and displays were well done. Would definitely recommend this as a stop.
Born to slaves, GW Carver did not let them hinder his aspirations in life. His masters were kind to him and allowed him some privileges that probably would not have been granted to other slaves, if not for his frail health. His interests in nature and all living things spurred him to get an education. His work with peanuts were... 更多
The museum is very well done with many activities for children upstairs. The grounds are nice with a large picnic area. There is a 3/4 mile trail that goes out the to site of the original cabin, the later built house that George Washington Carver visited and around a pond The trail is well kept and accessible for rolling walkers... 更多
Our family really enjoyed this place! We began our visit with a picnic, this was truly one of our favorite picnic spots we have been to! There are approximately a dozen tables spread over a football field worth of land so you have some privacy. The large hickory trees provide plenty of shade and their baseball sized nuts provided entertainment... 更多
The museum is full of interesting things about him. His life and discoveries span many fields of study: Region, Psychology, Sociology, Botany, Anthropology, Ecology, History, etc.... One of the exhibits said, "Imagine what he could have accomplished if he had had a computer."

Whatever you do don't miss the film that tells you of his life. If you didn't admire him before the film, you will afterwards. He was such a humble... 更多

I love to walk around and read all the quotes from George Washington Carver. The Discovery area is educational and there is a small gift shop. Beautiful grounds with... 更多
Located just a short drive off the highways of South East Missouri, this National Historical site is located close to Diamond Missouri. When you arrive, you will be allowed to take a self guided tour of the property which includes his parents home, a pond and a small cemetery which has a few of his peers and family members. Worth... 更多
I did not realize that there was so much more to George Washington Carver's life than his work with peanuts. The video that gives his life story is absolutely terrific! The exhibits repeat many of the things that you learn in the video, but repetition is good for learning. I came away totally impressed with the way this man handled... 更多
