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."
I've been a fan of George Washington Carver ever since I studied him in school and this national monument (it's free but they do accept free will donations) is just super! 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
We took a group of children here today, and I was reminded why I've always loved to visit-so many interesting things to learn, and a beautiful place to walk the trails. 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

I had no idea about GW Carver, other than he did something with peanuts! I am so glad I went here. What a driven individual he was. Excellent video about his life and the displays are fabulous. Great for kids. Well worth seeing!
I visited the park on Sat Aug 6, 2016. It may be in the middle of nowhere but it served as one of the most inspirational spots that I have ever visited. I was hip to the Peanut man, but all he went thru on his journey and his pleasant ATTITUDE and FOCUS during his journey is the metal of... 更多
Mention George Washington Carver and you might think of that guy who did something with peanuts.. but there is much, much more to the man than that. Sitting on 210 acres it consists of a museum along with the boyhood home of GWC as well as a nature trail. From where GWC came from to where he ended up is... 更多
We took our grandchildren to George Washington Carver National Monument. I went there as a child as did my children and their father. It is a wonderful example of a mans life and his giving to humanity. He was a great scientist and was always giving and kind. It's a great place to take children and show them how mankind... 更多
