Husband, son, daughter-in-law, 4yr old and baby grandkids spent a wonderful afternoon learning the political, natural, and cultural history of this 2nd-oldest city in Georgia. They had a hidden elf for our 4-year old to find as he explored. There were trains to climb into, a streetcar, an old gas station, a longboat, an extensive military exhibit, a James Brown... More

This is a great museum of history ! We took our home school group of children here for a field trip this past spring. They really enjoyed it (especially the "scavenger hunts" that are provided by the museum staff. This was very educational for them and it was not expensive. They want to go back again to do more scavenger... More

The size of the building is deceiving, The Museum is very large and loaded with great artifacts of history in this area. Great historical photos and stories. The subjects cover the Native Americans to the wars and agriculture. There are great works of art and local inventions that made life easier for the locals. The James Brown Area is awesome!... More

This museum was great! Full of artifacts and historical facts and figures to simply amaze and inform you. I truly enjoyed it. Also the Directress was a walking and talking encyclopedia. She was wonderful. Also there is an exhibit of James Brown's life, fascinating!

I have been to the museum several times, but had not been for several years. We took our son and his fiance who were visiting for the weekend. My son wanted to "show off" his hometown. We had a good time. I was impressed with the displays. Saw some old friends in some of the displays as well. Well worth... More

There is not a ton to see but it is very interesting. Talks about the history of Augusta and a few other things. Full size model train which is cool. I would go to the trolly tour that includes admission to this museum.

The museum shines in its presentation of local history. This includes the historic and unique canal system for its manufacturing, transportation and water supply importance. It also has good displays on Augusta's golf heritage and the development of the local courses. This coupled with the city's focus on medical and military rounds out what is important to the city. The... More

I went into this museum thinking they'll have tons of historic slave artifacts, but they had NONE! I am highly disappointed, now why would you not have any? Augusta, GA was a city huge in the slave trade. I hope they remodel and add some REAL deal stuff that people will be interested in other than golf. I recommend no... More

Enjoyed walking through museum and learning a lot about history of Augusta. Clean, modern building is easily accessible for handicapped people. Would go again when I have more time to fully explore all the exhibits.
