  • 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.

  • George Washington Carver is a monumental figure in American history, showing how a boy born into slavery could grow to become a scientist, educator, and humanitarian while overcoming enormous obstacles. The visitor center exhibits and film did a great job of communicating his achievements and humanity. The Junior Ranger book was fun and informative, and the rangers and staff were friendly and helpful. Combining this with a visit to Wilson's Creek National Battlefield made for a good day trip from Kansas City.
  • Helpful, friendly staff. Eager to talk about Carver's life and legacy, and about the monument. The gift shop attendant even told me about two other locations related to Carver's life in nearby Neosho, MO.
  • The staff at the G. W. Carver national monument is very welcoming. The visitor center is a 3 story building exhibiting the life and work of Carver. Dont miss a 30 min long inspiring movie about Prof Carver. The trail is a mile long walk which takes you back in a time of George Carver's childhood.
  • Such an amazing piece of history that probably most Americans don't know about.
  • Wonderful museum. Very interesting and educational.
