REVIEWS OF George Washington Carver National Monument IN Missouri

Jessica Faucett

We went as part of a field trip with our church's Vacation Bible School. We had a picnic on the well kept grounds on the sturdy and clean picnic tables. Then we went inside where a park ranger taught our children about George Washington Carver and directed them in making peanut milk. She was very knowledgeable and patient and kind with the children. The walking trail allows the feel of walking in nature while providing the safety of a clearly marked path.

Sherry Brown

Quiet and serene. Wish they would pave the whole trail. Would be nice to recreate the cabin. Hope they clean up the area that flooded with the brush. Would like the bench back by the pond. It is a wonderful place.

S.V. Farnsworth

My children love the museum, trails, activities, and especially the junior ranger camp each summer. There are really fun opportunities to volunteer as well.

Jim Tucker

A wonderful tribute to one of the great modern humanitarians. The trails, artifacts, and documents are interesting testaments to how incredibly productive one person can be to our one race, mankind, regardless of their obstacles and backgrounds. Very nice!

Kellie Miller

This is one of my favorite parks!! They have great trails and historic sites. We have learned so much about George Washington Carver. Their Junior Ranger program makes the park fun and interactive for kids. Their exhibits inside are also interesting and educational. The park rangers are friendly and knowledgeable. We drive from Tulsa to visit once a year or so - it's worth the drive!

Robert Tharp

We highly recommend stopping at George Washington Carver national monument!

josh thompson

Great place to immerse yourself in history. None of us have ever had as hard of a time as Mr Carver, and he accomplished so much.

Jason Clements

A nice small national monument site, good for an hour if you are passing near and want to stretch. Has small musuem about Carver and a 3/4 mile trail to see some sights.

Audrey Dill

This is great place to walk. It is handicapped accessible shady and it has lots of benches to set on as you walk.

Plum Angel

I will go back to visit and encourage others to go as well! Great for all students & teachers.

Tom Harden

George Washington Carver was a great Ameriy. Much more than the peanut butter man

Dustin Wheeler

Nice walk around and intriguing museum.

Michael McGill

The rangers were very nice and informative. The wife was so moved she is working on bringing some students there this school year.

Nick Guarino

I didn't know a ton about George Washington Carver when I visited the National Monument, but I came away from my visit with great admiration for a man who contributed so much to American life and with tremendous grace, despite the unfair challenges that faced him. The museum is informative and the grounds make for a pleasant, easy walk through the woods.

Meralis VA

This place is great. It is neat for family, friends, and Science, Social Studies, and History teacher/classes (educational field trips). This is a really scientific, historical, faith, and social studies experience. This is a must see!

Rebecca Trapp

Peaceful grounds. Excellent history. Exciting to actually hear recording if this great man's voice.

Bradon gamer

Great place to walk around

Rebecca Bellington

Very cool place to visit and lots for the whole family to enjoy.

Rusty Anglin

Very informative. There is a nature trail, picnic area, and we'll appointed musiem with interactive exhibits. Good place for a family outing.

Becca Wyrsch

Very well maintained but not a good hike. Would be fun for kids


Nice trail, with inspirational quotes. Plenty of benches to sit and ruminate. I didnt want to sit and ruminate, so I didnt. I just walked the whole way. My 5 year old nephew was a wimp though. He had to take a break, 5 seconds before the end of the trail. He just gave up. Sat in the middle of the sidewalk like he died. Dramatic much????

Bobby Steinshouer

Great historical site. Very informative and interesting place to visit. The meeting room was comfortable and the staff went the extra mile to accommodate everyone. Parking was very accessible.

Jared M

Fun place for the family to get out & explore nature, all while learning about a local legend at the same time. There's plenty of walking trails & a visitor center as well. You can watch a 28 min video on the life of GWC - also have several displays that showcase his accomplishments

Melinda Milligan

Loved all the new changes. Can't wait to take my grandboys there

Dan S

This is a great NPS site devoted to an American treasure, Dr. George Washington Carver. The nature trail loop is a fantastic little slice of nature, easily accessed from two interstates. The exhibits are very interesting as well. Fantastic place, overall.

Jane Ball

We started visit by watching video which was very informative. Very interesting! The walk outside was nice with statues. The setting was idyllic. Amazed at the discrimination this wonderful man suffered in his life and continued to move forward without malice.

Daniel Jackson

Excellent walking trail 3/4 loop with an additional 1/4 loop around a pond. Great for kids with interactive learning stations.

Beth Hammock

Inspiring, informative and beautiful woods and fields. Excellent movie and lots of activities for the kids.

Emily Crain

Great place but I took off a star because it's day use only. There's picnic tables and walking trails outside but you have to be out and they close the gate at 5pm. We got there kind of late so we had to rush through the museum, but it was great! The gift shop didn't have a ton, but what they did have was very good and the ranger was awesome! She was very knowledgeable and helpful. If you're pressing through the area, definitely stop and check it out!

Lucinda Hash

I was amazed at the information found about such an amazing man. A true renaissance man. The museum is extreamly child friendly. It has many stations for children to explore. It was too hot for the trails but we are looking forward to coming back.

Leah Bryant

Hands down one of the best National Parks we have been to. Nice staff and buildings, trails and trail signs were in good shape, and the displays gave a great, well-rounded information. But the hands on kids' exhibit was the best part. My mom and I took four kids (14, 8,8, and 6) and all of us had a great time. The kids liked playing and learning about what inspired GWC and us adults (both educators) loved being in the mock classroom and reading his quotes on education. Overall, we all left humbled, inspired, and in awe. So glad my son picked this as his place to see on our little trip!!

Monica Moore

George Washington Carver, an intelligent man. He respected God, people and the earth. He was a brilliant scientist. I do not know the reason he is not studied in schools. This would be a great place to have a family reunion.

Terri Sepaugh

A beautiful place to visit. Surprisingly much larger than I expected with many exhibits, many great for kids. We love walking the mile long trail. Will definitely visit again!

Jessica Howard

I'm so happy we went here, it was beautiful and serene. I learned many things about Mr. Carver that I never knew. Very cool museum.

Samantha Guidorzi

Joan Ingwersen

Very pleasant setting, and lots of good information. We learned lots of new things about GW Carver. Picnic tables available to make a day of it.

Jim Palm

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.

Ashley Smith

Absolutely amazing. A lot of hsnds on stuff and lots to learn about

Cal Churchwell

One of my favorite all time nature and relaxing parks. The cultural and scientific insights of George Washington Carver are astounding. Great location for a family outing.

A must-see for the history of the United States and our move towards equal rights and education for all. Great stop for little education and they provide a Shady Tree areas with park picnic tables for the public to use

Hillary Doggart-Greer

Beautiful place to learn about a national treasure. Great place for the whole family.

James Grube

It's a great place to go and learn nice walking trail and creeks

Kyla Blinzler

We took 4 toddlers and two babies. The kids loved getting to be outside and explore. We taught them as we went along. It was also nice that it was stroller and wheelchair accessible since one of our 4 yr olds is in wheelchair. And strolling the babes was nice too!

Rhonda Silence

I remember reading about George Washington Carved as a child, but had no idea of the extent of his scientific work or his social justice work.

Tekeshia Hunter

Not really what I expected. This was a mandatory, paid field trip and I honestly expected more. There was so much down time between changing groups, the students were getting bored and uninterested. Each station told the same story as the last. The best part was the walk through the woods. The gift store is also a little pricey.

Angel viveiros

Didn't get to go in but looked very interesting for a good time very good learning program for children

Nathan Green

What a great inspiration of a man!

Lindsey Greve

This is a very fun interaction national monument to come to. Really enjoy the walking trail and all the different things you get to do while there. A good place for anyone to visit.

Jeramy Mccauley

Super informative tour Awesome place!

Chris Johnson

This is a beautiful place to visit. The park has nice shaded picnic areas, a walking trail through the woods, leading you to the Carvers family home, and the cemetery. The visitor center was designed to allow children to explore upstairs. I've been in the classroom one time with a group of school kids. I can not say enough good things about the park. Great day trip. The Park Rangers are extremely well prepared; leading you through his childhood, and then his accomplishments in life.

George Pickell

The place needs updated! The plants and trees are not named with the common or scientific names. High educational opportunity being missed. The entire experience was elementary to me.

Peter Rauch

We visit here in all seasons. Close to home. Very nice walking trail. We enjoy the history represented here.

Elijah Webster

Great place to realize that God can do anything and can show light in the darkness

I could not have asked for a better day! Thank You Universe!

James West

A place to explore and learn very important stuff and learn and walking around family and friends with experience the whole world natural has G W C The past I will be back .

S.P. Woods

This is a great park for a short hike and capturing a little history. If you like peanut butter and history, this is a place for you. Also a great story of a man who went from slave to scientist. Highly recommend this place!

So inspirational. GWC's faith is still contagious and encouraging.

Rebecca Botts

Wonderful short trip for family with kids.

Price Cloud

This place only gets better since I was a kid and now taking my kids to it!

Caleb Kempf

Such a neat gem in rural Missouri. Learned so much on a short amount of time here. What a great Christian intellectual man that worked hard to bridge the racial gap a hundred years ago with love, education, and fellowship. One of the best people to ever live, no kidding.

April Creason

Great family fun and the kids can learn about history.

Very well kept. The rangers here are helpful and friendly. Nice place to picnic and relax.

Rain Runner

A pretty amazing place! George Washington Carver was a brilliant, industrious, and frugal innovator of the 19th and 20th centuries. He cared deeply for his fellow humans, and was a strongly spiritual man, excelling at the science and metrics of learning everything in nature. He was the conduit for many natural discoveries to reach the industrial world, and his work has a lasting effect on everyday American life. The national monument is a museum, a nature center, and a memorial to this true American. Here, there are restrooms, water, and parking, a picnic area, and walking trails. Everything is accessible to disabled and excellent for young children.

lapis wolf

Lots to see here. Interactive things for kids also.

Ly Miller

Great experience, hope to go back. Kids enjoyed themselves and enjoyed the tasks to earn their badges. If you're looking for a place to take a calm short walk, this is it.

Donese Perrin

Terrific and well organized. Greeted us as soon as we came in the door,and explained all the possibilities. We enjoyed the movie, and it is so well done. Good intro to the rest of the many displays.

Bobbie Pennington

Such a great place for families! The trail is short enough for the little kids to do okay and the displays and educational information inside are wonderful. My kids and I went here a lot when they were young. Good, free entertain and education!

Heather Sinclair

This was an awesome experience that I took with the fifth and sixth graders at Service Valley Charter Academy.

Jennifer Bentzen

Easy walks,very educational and spiritual not to mention it's FREE

Carson Jensen

One of the best local places we have found to go on a walk in nature. Inside there are many displays and even a theater with a 30 min movie. We learned new history. It was intriguing to learn everything.

Larry Twedt

Wow what place and what man. Great job

Joan Kokoska

Such a humble man!!! Of which our generation rarely encounters. I an honored to have been a part of today's visitors to the monument. Thank you...all the employees for caring for this wonderful site!

Christopher Branscum

Ths place is quite peaceful! I imagined Mr. Carver traversing the countryside as a young boy , thinking that I walked in the same place as this great man. It was an honor to be here today. The park has been well kept and the history well preserved. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and patient with our group. This is definitely worth the stopping and visiting.
