May 2018. We "stumbled upon" this fascinating museum and cultural center in Phoenix on the way back home from an appointment downtown.
The George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center is a historical preservation site that is dedicated to the Collection, Documentation, Preservation, Study, and Dissemination of the History and Culture of Africans and Americans of African Descent in Arizona.
Affectionally known as The Carver Museum, they carry out its mission through exhibitions, archives/collections and a variety of community educational programs designed to explore the roles of African derived Americans in shaping the history of Phoenix and the State of Arizona.
The Carver Museum is a privately managed institution that depends primarily on the support of its visitors, donors and partners to remain open and free to the public. Though there is no charge for admission, your donation will play a key role in ensuring they remain open and with free admission for visitors.
