“The Civil War Canal Ride Was Great!”
Reviewed November 16, 2011

The museum is very information and interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed the canal ride. The view was very scenic and the tour guide was excellent. I never knew Augusta had such a rich history. The experience was well worth it.

“A must see in Augusta!”
Reviewed October 20, 2008

Be sure to visit, for a great trip through the canal and to learn about the canal history. Allow time to walk through the canal exibits and pick up a schedule of their special events I wish we lived closer. The restoration of this great piece of history is amazing!
