Very cool to walk through this museum. $4 for admission, but well worth it. There is some general history. Some history of the famous people. And definitely some golf history. The history of Augusta in the context of the golf is very intriguing as that is what the city is best known for today. Some cool exhibits and tidbits about... More

This is actually a good stop in Augusta. Lots of interesting things to see. I liked Dent's Undertaking Establishment's horse-drawn hearse - now that's history! I think it could be better organized and in fact, the Augusta Library offers some interesting history of the city as well. But, the museum must decide if it wants to focus on golf or... More

Loaded with local history to the Augusta Ga / Aiken Sc area and more . Great attraction and self guided tours are a bonus . Cost should be free but it's around $5.00 each which is not bad . Augusta did a great job detailing this museum.

I have never been to Augusta and wanted to learn more about it. The displays were very well done and informative. I had to laugh at the phrase "the war of northern aggression" for the Civil War but I'm a damn Yankee. The civil war displays were well done. On the 2nd floor was a great display on James Brown...

This museum is a must for all visitors to Augusta. Located at 6th street between Broad and Reynolds streets, it is across from Riverwalk/Savannah River which is also a beautiful stroll. The museum is rich with Augusta history from Cotton Gins, Cotton boats and James Brown's collection. Clean, beautiful, rich in history.

We wanted to visit and learn a bit more about the area. It is located on Reynolds street which is about 3 miles for Augusta National Golf Club. only $4 which is excellent. It is also opposite the Riverwalk which is extremely beautiful. We did both. Inside you will find history on the railways, war, golf and traditions. A must... More

This two story building in the heart of downtown Augusta is just outstanding. From the indian settlements to the modern day Masters, it tells the story of a city which has seen the best of times and the worst of times. I highly recommend making the time to go by and visit it.

Covers the history of Augusta from the stone age-present day- interactive and decently entertaining for older kids. Great area for wedding receptions!

This is not a huge museum. They close on mondays. But, it's a quality museum that has a lot of history about Augusta. There are a few exhibits that help kids understand life in the 1800's. Couple of documentaries about the city. There are exhibits on farming / industry / home life. For a smaller city, they've done a good... More
