You studied him school now stop here and spend a couple of hours learning the entire story of one of the great minds of our time. Watch the video in the theatre first, this will set up everything you're going to see as you walk around the museum and grounds. An amazing story about an amazing man.

We really enjoyed our visit to this hidden gem of a national park. It was really interesting learning more about George Washington Carver's childhood and background. I would highly recommend making this part of any visit to Missouri.

I learned so much, you can say that he was (George Washington Carver) the father of modern agriculture, his understanding of the agriculture industry was leaps and bounds ahead of his time. here in the pick shown are some of the things that can be (in whole or in part) attributed to Mr. Carvers work. a true genius of his time.

Such a lovely national treasure! Staff very helpful. Grounds we're beautiful for our picnic. Very educational and well worth getting off the highway for.

The park has been upgraded from when I was there years ago. There is a lot of information and hands on things to do in the building. Outside the trails are beautiful. I really enjoyed visiting the park.
