Despite there being no such notice on the website, this museum was closed for renovations. Very disappointing to travel here and be unable to visit.

What is the best way to let travels know that a site is closed indefinitely? I made a visit to this museum in January and found the doors locked with a note that the site was closed indefinitely. Looking through the window I’m not sure it will ever reopen. The entire bookstore area was empty with no organization. You can... More

If you want to learn about George Washington Carver, this is the place to go. You can see things he worked with, hear him give a lecture, and see artifacts from his life.

Didn't take time to go inside because I didn't know it was a museum but the architecture alone is outstanding. I must have taken a dozen pictures from various angles. But, next time, now that I know that it houses a museum, I will certainly spend more time inside than outside.

There is a 20 minute video that is helpful to see first to understand how Carver got to the Alabama. The exhibits were excellent and you learned a lot about Carver's life, studies, and community work. The exhibits were understandable and this would be an excellent museum for kids. You even learn a little bit about agriculture practices and a... More

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
