Guests may enter as early as 6:00 pm to browse the museum's current exhibits while smooth jazz plays throughout the facility. A tantalizing menu comprised of Arrosto Italiano Chicken with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Seasonal Vegetables will be served by Bella's Fine Dining at 6:30 pm followed by the soulful sounds of UAB's Artist-in-Residence Eric Essix and his Band.

The G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum: Partners in Progress

It has been several decades since this bus station was used as a place of rest and transition for those who were traveling to and from an unsettledand restless south. Back then, "??Colored"? entered through separate doors, used separate restrooms, drank from separate water fountains andrelaxed separately as they waited to begin or continue their respective journeys. Who knew then that this very place, along with others just like it throughout the south, would eventually be the center of the Civil Rights Movement and the South's ultimate transition from hate and segregation to hope and unity.

Since 2000, when Visionary and Founder: Dr. Francina Williams turned what used to be Dothan's bus station into a thriving Museum, The Carver has served as a rich source of African-American History.

In honor of Dr. Carver's achievements, The Carver Museum not only provides Tours to the public, but we encourage science exploration in our Discovery Zone; a place of excitement and hands-on learning for students Pre-K to 12th Grade (as well as Home-School Groups).

With support from our community partners and friends, The G.W. Carver Interpretive Museum continues its commitment to serve visitors from both the Wiregrass area and beyond
