Good starting point if you intend to tour the canal. This small museum has exhibits to tell the history of its construction and expansion to power the cotton manufacturing facilities. Small entrance fee includes a short video presentation. Tickets for Canal cruises sold here. It was warm and sunny so we didn't take the cruise.

This was a very interesting renovated mill - lots of history about the canal - worth a visit. It is a huge building that contains offices as well as apartments. You could feel the history. Worth a visit and just a couple of blocks from the central business district.

The canal interpretative center is definitely a must see if you are in Augusta. take the bot ride too as you get to see some sights and learne about Augusta's history. I enjoyed both the museum and the boat ride.

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.
