Nice place to escape the heat and experience history.

The center is good facility that's uncrowned and scenic. Take the Petersburg boat tour up the canal for an added fun experience.

My 10 year old son and I visited the center on a day out of school. I chose the Center as a educational field trip. There was a minimal charge per person. The introductory video was enlightening. It gave factual and letting information about the Augusta Canal and the Augusta Area. The canal worker was not friendly and it appeared... More

There is a short film that talks about the canal. Theater was right off the entry way. Then you walk through the museum area that has hands on areas as well as audio interpretation that are motion activated. Restrooms are in the back. Small gift shop that is filled with books, novelties and misc touristy things. This is where you... More

We'd be writing a review of the great family spots in Augusta... but there aren't any we've found... and we've been looking for 3 years. It's worth the approx. 70 mile drive to go to Columbia SC instead (Riverbanks, Discovery Center, Puppet Theatre, State Museum, etc.).

This is nice little museum showing a piece of Augusta history. It is a must see for locals and visitors. The canal is one of those things in Augusta that everyone knows is there but folks don't appreciate. This provides a chance for all ages to see this part of history. The museum itself is very clean and enjoyable. All... More

A hat and sunscreen are advisable, or use one of the UV umbrellas provided aboard. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and her presentation was not "canned" at all. In addition to operating the electric powered boat, the captain kept our guide apprised of wildlife sitings on the canal (turtles, ducks, and otters) and along the shoreline (roosting water... More

I live here thus likely take many of what I consider a few attractions for granted; but, my 11 year old son really did enjoy this place. It offers a lot of historical info regarding Augusta, the value of the river to the city and citizens, the floods, and one can even take a boat ride up the canal. Worth... More
