This is a wonderful small art museum. A true gem in downtown Augusta. Good civil war art. They offer guided and unguided tours with trained docents.

We are locals and went here for an afternoon. Wonderful artwork and highly educational. The gift shop offers souvenirs and many gift ideas. Will be back to see the next exhibit, John Mellencamp's just left April 12th.

Regina is correct. I went to the Museum on a Sunday, and so it was free. I don't know what the regular rate is.
