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 boat tour of the canal that provided the water to power the mill is very enjoyable and informative. Very worthwhile for... More

Went with a group from my church and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The background of the canal and the worker's lives was fascinating. Loved the boat ride and took lots of pictures.

A great little tour in an open boat traveling up and down the canal with the tour guide giving details on the history and pointing out sites and wildlife along the way. It was very informative but, not so sure how smaller kids would do except for the fun of being on an open boat. The museum was a very... More
