This is a wonderful history interpretation center. They tell it like it was back then - the good and the bad. Very good exhibits. We took the boat tour on the canal - very beautiful. Highly recommended.

a very innovative and nicely laid out cultural/historical display in a wonderfully restored old mill adjacent to the canal. the canal boat tour is a plus.

The canal discovery center offers an interesting insight into Augusta and Southern history. The history of the canal is the history of Augusta, Georgia. The history is told through exhibits, a video and the Petersburg boat tour. For one price you get it all. We found it incredibly interesting.

a beautiful building with cool exhibits including a small turbine that when it is ran actually drives a chunk of leather belts and pulleys in the museum. a nice theater with a good story about the area and the beginning of the canal, and some good interpretive and interactive exhibits explaining what is special about the place. A cool way... More

Love this place. A beautiful building, with a sometimes working small turbine that has a window on it so you can see inside (and if they are running it a whole chunk of drive mechanism actually runs), a great story about the industrialization of the U.S., a lovely theater showing an informative movie, lovely staff and a boat ride on...

I lived in Augusta eight years, but not until I returned for a weekend visit did I decide to take a cruise on the canal, and was glad I did. Very interesting insight into the history of Augusta and 19th Century USA in general. Don't miss it!

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
