“James Brown revisited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014


we viewed the exhibit of James Brown. It revealed things about his career that I did not know, even though I followed him through that time. The exhibit is very informative and extensive. Our visit coincided with the release of his biopic "Get On Up", which premiered at a downtown theater.

Toni, the salesperson in the store, was very helpful and enthusiastic in her praise of Augusta.

“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

I've been to better museums, but those were in the nation's capital and various state capitals. This museum captures the local history well. Only complaint is a little too much focus on James Brown.

“Augusta Museum is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We visited this museum last month and wished we had more time there. The volunteer guide (I can not remember her name, but it was on Sunday 25 May. She may remember us, as we were telling her how wonderful it is to Skype with family members far away), was VERY knowledgeable about everything in the museum and it was a pleasure to hear it all. Well, nearly all as we had to leave to go a cave and a lookout before it got dark. This museum has wonderful photos and artefacts from the early history of Augusta and surrounding area. Such difficult and hard early days! A must see if you are in the area!

Be sure to visit the Augusta History Museum. The historical displays are
very interesting and kept up very well. Children will also enjoy this visit.

“Good Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We were surprised at how much history there was in the area, aside from the Masters tournament. Very nice building with very good exhibits. The gift shop staff was really nice and very informative.
