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 history museum in Augusta is great! I have been through it one time. They have a lot of history in Augusta and I esp enjoyed looking at the Masters display in the museum.

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!

Nicely done. Good displays, well maintained, entry fee of $4 per person was reasonable. There is a full size train inside the museum, which is a surprise. This is not the Smithsonian, but a very nice place to spend about 90 minutes.

Greatly enjoyed our trip to this museum. It has exhibits for every interest. We were there several hours and didn't see all of it. It's a good place for a date or a family outing.
