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.

This museum was amazing...I was pleasantly surprised...didn't expect it to be so detailed.the James Brown area is nice as well as the huge train in it! The new section with all the 80's and 90's stuff is sooo cool!

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.

Like many museums I have visited across the USA. Interesting history of people coming from this area that I was unaware. Large collection of artifacts dating back before our more recent indians. Plan on spending a little time here to absorb all the details.

Two floors (elevator) of interpretive exhibits dedicated to the history of Augusta and the surrounding area; all for only $4 per Adult (discounts for Seniors 65+). Kids of all ages should enjoy the Transportation Corridor including a Locomotive and Pullman Coach which were rescued and restored. Don't miss the tribute to James Brown, The Godfather of Soul or the war... More

Definitely worth the $4.00 fee if you enjoy southern history including a lot of area related - Georgia facts and details! Civil war artifacts and old south culture is educational. Allow at least 1 1/2 hours for your self guided tour.

Great little museum in the heart of downtown Augusta. The staff was extremely friendly. One of the Docents volunteered to give us a guided tour through part of the Museum. We happened to be visiting while a Jazz band was practicing upstairs in the James Brown area of the museum and were entertained with their music during our visit.

I likes the James Brown display they have there it shows you a lot about him and his life and some of his personal items, if you like golf they have a nice golf exhibit.
