Surprisingly the museum is closed Mon-Wed so check your hours before going. Very disappointed that it was closed. Also, the Visitor Center is no longer at the museum. It's on Broad Street now. But there's great parking. That's my only positive for this trip.

Great place to spend a couple hours if you like history. The exhibits were well organized, well maintained and informative. And if I remember right, admission was $1, so very worth while for the cost.

This is a wonderful museum in the heart of Augusta. An added bonus is that the facility can be rented out for events and is perfect for any size group. Highly recommend!
