This is a really worthwhile place to visit with children. Combines a cultural experience with interesting facts about peanuts and history of the South. Thoroughly recommend it.

This is a small museum that highlights the contributions of many African Americans. It should more rightly be called the African American Accomplishments Center. I was looking for the history of George Washington Carver but didn't find it here.
