While my husband was working in Augusta and I was visiting we decided to take in some of the historic sites in the town. So we went to the Museum and we didn't expect to spend much time there but we were defiantly wrong, I bet we ended up touring the museum for at least 2 hours. Everything was very... More

This museum offers a look into the history of Augusta. There were a few rooms dedicated to James Brown, very interesting to read about. Also some of this more flashy outfits are on display. We enjoyed moving room to room and discovering the past. Very enjoyable.

Hey, if you're stuck in Augusta, this is an interesting couple of hours. They have done a good job with it and it kept our five year old twins interested for the time we were there. We like local museums when we travel and this one is a lot better than average. It's on Augusta's main drag where a lot... More

This is a nice museum that offers a look back at our local history. Layout is easy to follow and kept our interest. It's like the State Museum in Columbia on a smaller scale for half the price. One section of the museum is dedicated to Augusta's famous son, James Brown. It was cool to see his costumes, photographs, and,... More

I was staying in Augusta and working during the week when the wife said let's go up there Saturday night and go sight seeing. Well this museum had a lot of history and just happened to be free that Sunday.

Augusta has two equally interesting museums: the Museum of History and the Augusta Canal Interpretative Center. Both are important museums of Augusta and the area and really ought to be toured close together in time. The Museum of History has the broader scope, from prehistoric artifacts to the present, with an emphasis on some of Augusta's most historically noteworthy residents.... More

This was a very good museum for the family to visit with a great variety of exhibits which appeal to all. From the history of Augusta, famous citizens, the Canal and its impact, to Augusta National Golf exhibits, there is so much of interest. It is well planned and thought out. I would suggest at least an hour to two... More
