Those who know little about history may not only be doomed to repeat it, but also, and more likely, are doomed to live in ignorance about the world around them. Such is it with this most excellent museum and interpretive center, which does a fine job of telling the story of Augusta's very interesting history related to the canal, to... More

Well educated tour guide, and while she was not very friendly, or knowledgable of the other aspects of the canal it was informative.

We were in Augusta for the day and decided to stop at the Canal Interpretive Center. We're so glad we did! There was a 10 minute movie talking about the canal and its influence on Augusta. Then we walked through the museum, which was very interesting. We learned quite a bit about Augusta and the canal. We also went on... More

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
