It follows George Washington Carver's careers as an artist, teacher and scientist. His preserved laboratory depicts experiments that resulted in more than 300 extractions from peanuts and more than 100 by-products from sweet potatoes. Among his inventions were a paint formulated from Alabama clay and a synthetic marble made from wood pulp. The museum also has exhibits about the history of Tuskegee Institute.
