Such a well done display!!! There is some serious history in Augusta and so many things to see. The museum is a great place to begin your trip because you have all the local attractions laid out for you in the tourist center. Each room had displays of artifacts and a progressional history of Augusta from the civil war era... More

I was in Augusta for a convention and saw this museum. I went in and was very glad I did. They had Augusta's history. The Antebellum period to a real steam locomotive and a trolley car. You can actually get on these. They had a section for golfers and war heroes. Several local legends especially James Brown. Found out things... More

We visited the museum & were very impressed with the collections that were displayed. We really enjoyed the locomotive that was on the lower level & reading how it was brought to that point. The

A good place to spend a little time and learn about Augusta history.. Escape the heat and see a nice collection James Brown memorabilia.

Such a great museum. Needed more time. Must visit if you are in Augusta. Check when they are open so that you can be sure to be in town.

Good step into Augusta's history. There is an admission fee, but very reasonable. It is close to the Savannah River and the River Walk, plus the boats are nearby. Nice and peaceful. Take a bite at many of the restaurant Reynolds St and Broad St. Free parking is abundant. Good trip for the family.

When you enter the visitor center is off to the side. The entrance to the Museum the person behind the counter welcomes you and offers you to purchase tickets. BUT they do not tell you a better combo ticket can be purchased in the welcome center. The museum is worth going through. Two floors and covers a multitude of items.... More

Great museum! Worth going to if you're in the area. By the canal and restaurants downtown. Interesting exhibits including a James brown exhibit.
