Working in Augusta for a week, I was able to get out a bit early to spend at least 30 minutes at the museum before closing. I wish I had more time. It is very well designed with insightful and informative exhibits. I particularly enjoyed the train, trolley, Civil War, and James Brown exhibits. Very impressive for a 'city' museum.... More

we viewed the exhibit of James Brown. It revealed things about his career that I did not know, even though I followed him through that time. The exhibit is very informative and extensive. Our visit coincided with the release of his biopic "Get On Up", which premiered at a downtown theater. Toni, the salesperson in the store, was very helpful... More

I've been to better museums, but those were in the nation's capital and various state capitals. This museum captures the local history well. Only complaint is a little too much focus on James Brown.

We visited this museum last month and wished we had more time there. The volunteer guide (I can not remember her name, but it was on Sunday 25 May. She may remember us, as we were telling her how wonderful it is to Skype with family members far away), was VERY knowledgeable about everything in the museum and it was... More

Be sure to visit the Augusta History Museum. The historical displays are very interesting and kept up very well. Children will also enjoy this visit.

We were surprised at how much history there was in the area, aside from the Masters tournament. Very nice building with very good exhibits. The gift shop staff was really nice and very informative.

The Augusta museum of history was a lot larger on the inside than what it looked like on the outside. We enjoyed learning - and seeing - what was offered in the museum. Pricing was reasonable, and they even offer discounts to kids under 18. It's worth a few hours of your time, if you wanted to check it out.

While this is a smaller museum, it gave a good overview of the history of Augusta, and had very varied exhibits. The Augusta Visitor's Center is located in the lobby to the museum. It is a good deal at $4 for adults, $2 for children 5-18, and rounds out a visit to the downtown Augusta area!
