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.

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.

A very well done community museum. A terrific collection well displayed that does a great job of telling the history of the area. Interesting programs and after hours activities.

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

This is a really great museum to take kids to because it is small enough to hold their attention but large enough with great exhibits to teach and inform about a lot of history. Well Worth a visit.

We took our fifth graders here on a field trip. The kids loved it. The museum folks were well informed about the history, and Julie made the booking easy.
