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.

We wanted to know more about Augusta and this was a great way to do it. Exhibits were arranged attractively with a lot of details. We were also able to hear the James Brown Academy of Music Pupils practice. Incredible music!

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.
