The museum is interesting. Best of all are the boat history tours. Guides are knowledgeable. The boat is quiet and scenery beautiful. Entertainment offered some evenings.

This place truly gives you an expansive view of how wide the river between Ga. and S.C. can be. Great place to hold events.

The building is nice and in fact still an operational mill. The museum inside was nice, well laid out. We watched a short video prior to the Canal Boat tour. The guide and captain were friendly and the narrative during the trip was very informative and interesting. It is an open boat and it was hot but they supplied "sun"... More

Do not do this on a hot day in Augusta! You will melt like a Hershey's kiss in a microwave on high! Other than that it is a great tour. Take in the scenery and the history of Augusta.

Nice lazy ride up and back on the Augusta Canal. Casual tour of the Center is a nice historical outing. Pick a day when the tradesmen are there demonstrating their skills.

The center showed a slice of life in an emerging Augusta. The best part was seeing the first hearse used by my paternal great grandparents of Dent Funeral Home.

Booked this sunset cruise for my husband's Father's Day gift. It was a pleasant 3 hour cruise down Memory Lane. We used to live in Augusta and fished in the canal when we were newly married. We will celebrate our Golden Anniversary in August so it was great fun to see how it's changed and all the improvements which have... More

There is a very interesting museum that provides excellent insights into the early development of the city, the development of the cotton mill industry, and a good perspective on the lives of those working in the early mills. The boat tour of the canal that provided the water to power the mill is very enjoyable and informative. Very worthwhile for... More
