This is a cool local Museum and for only $4 per person, very reasonable. The entire collection can be seen in about an hour. It's also situated in close proximity to the river walk and broad street.

Good place to spend a couple hours walking around in. They have a good exhibit about the King of Soul, James Brown. There's railroad cars you can walk through so it seems kids would like it. I learned a lot about Augusta here. Enjoyed it.

For a modest $4, you can enjoy 2 floors' worth of very real history from this very rich region. I never realized the significance of Augusta until I read about the part it played in the Civil War or how transportation has helped to shape the nation after the South was war-torn. There are reminders of slavery that are moving;... More

The Museum is an excellent venue to hold events for around 150 people. It was clean and the staff was excellent. The kitchen area was useful for the caterer to serve the guests. Excellent facilities.

My son-in-law and I visited the museum on the visit last summer. Both of us being from Kansas, it was very enlightening to learn some of Augusta history. The displays are well presented and offer some in-sight to history.

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!
