On the day I arrived, they did not have a boat running, as the third trip had been canceled. So I can't tell you about the boat ride. I did go through the museum, and walked up to the canal. Lovely greenway for walking. Locals were fishing across the canal. The Enterprise Mill was large and beautiful. The museum was... More

I visited the Augusta Canal Interpretive Center specifically to take the Civil War themed Canal Tour. I was very much impressed with the museum at the Enterprise Mill and the way that it presented history. Perhaps because my Great-Grandparents were mill workers, I especially enjoyed the interactive aspects, such as a game that timed you putting bobbins on pins. It... More

This is by far one of the "must see" things about Augusta! The mill is super interesting and the $12. Fee includes a very interesting ride on a canal boat.

Love this canal tour. We do this event every chance we get. Especially the music boat. Great entertainment. We always ask to ride on Capt Charlie's boat. Friendliest boat capt they have.

The Augusta Canal Center is a wonderful place to visit!!!! I especially recommend it to visitors with kids. The displays are very informative and interactive for kids of all ages. Don't miss out on the canal boat rides! Though they are over way too fast, the cruises are great and the guides couldn't be better!!!!! Wonderful way to see another... More

Never having been to Augusta, we were quite interested in the history of the cotton and textile mills of the area. No OSHA back then! The displays at the Interpretive Center are detailed and highly interactive. Great for adults, kids (and adults who feel like acting like kids as they learn)! The gift shop carries many items from educational books,... More

This is an fun place to visit in Augusta. There is a small but very informative museum in the old mill building. It tells the history of the development of the canal and the textile industry that put Augusta on the map. Then you can take the boat ride on the canal in an actual replica of the canal boats...

We have cruised the Augusta Canal 5 times in a year. It is a perfect place to bring visitors to Augusta and it is wonderful for children. Guides are knowledgeable, scenery is beautiful and one never knows what critter or bird will be seen. The Interpretative Center has a great short movie about the Augusta Canal and interactive, hands-on displays... More

I've been through the Interpretive Center several times and enjoy it every time. It's so informative and educational. But my favorite thing is the canal trip in the Petersburg boat. It's so relaxing and I've learned so much from it. If you love history or nature you'll love this place! You get the best of both.

The best understand the history of a place is to experience it first hand. The Augusta Canal Interpretive Center allow you step back in time and experience The canal the way it was. The tour guide was knowledgable and explained it well. The experience is a bit pricey. All things being said it was a good time.
