This was a great field trip for the children, the museum has lots of cool stuff and even some interactive displays, we got to watch a sort film about Augusta and the mills before going on the boat. The boat tour (and guide) was very informative on the civil war history and the boat itself is very large with plenty... More

We took the canal tour and explored the Discovery Center with our 9 children, ages 2 to 18. The canal tour was great for all ages. Bring binoculars! The kids all enjoyed the guided tour, and loved the freedom of the big Petersburg boat; they could kneel on the benches, and turn to look out the sides of the boat.... More

Didn't know what to expect - stopped after a day at the Masters to get a NPS stamp. The museum was very fun and had some cool interactive displays. We spent an hour or so looking at them all and wish we had more time to take a boat tour. The gift shop is well stocked with many interesting things.

This is one of the first places you should visit if you are visiting Augusta. There's a lot of great information about the area before the canal, and afterwards, as well as civil war history. We spent several hours here and then took one of the electric boat up the canal. Definitely worth a visit.

I love this place. They show movies about the town of Augusta and its history. The building was used for cotton many years ago. They have a great selection of gifts for the best price in town. You can also ask for recommendations for what else to do in that area. Near some great restaurants.

It's not what it used to be but it's still a great place to spend an afternoon with your family. At night the place gets a bit sketchy but that just the city life I guess. If the weather is right and you are looking for a romantic place to hang out at... I say go for it!

This is a unique place of history with so much information about a historical past of Georgia and Augusta in particular. There us a canal nearby and we took a boat ride on the canal. Very quiet and uneventful and the canal waters so peaceful. A family outing with children for sure.

The Augusta Canal, located near downtown Augusta, was built before the Civil War to bring power and industry to Augusta. It is still operational today. A National Historic Site, it offers a small museum/interpretive center, and canal boat rides. The rides are at 10:30 am, 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm. Also some special evening cruises with sunsets and musical entertainment.... More

A friend and I went to hear The Henrys with Deveran at 6:00 P.M. on Friday, October 4, 2013. The three piece band (Dad plays the guitar, son plays the violin, and Deveran handles the upright bass) played Americana, semi-classical, and blue grass music to entertain the mixed crowd of about thirty-six persons. Most people brought food and drink aboard... More

My friend and I took her 3 year old grandson on the Augusta Canal tour on a boat through the old cotton/weaving buildings. Its was about a 30/40 min tour on the waterfront. Tour guide gave us the history as we went up and back down the canal. There was many items inside from the mills. It was very interesting.... More
