Love this place! It's so affordable (4$ for 6 & up, FREE under 6yrs). I take my son a few times a year and pay 4$ so he can climb inside the authentic train car, trolley, and river boat. He loves pretending to drive the gold cart and I love reading about the different parts of Augusta history each time we go. I'm still finding new information 2 years later! It's very clean and well presented, with different areas for different eras. All the way from prehistoric times to modern golfing history and everything in between. The people who work there are so above and beyond helpful and friendly too. When we first moved here, the lady at the information desk told us all about Augusta suburbs, school zones, restaurants, attractions, local business, and more. She gave us a bag full of helpful pamphlets and brochures too. We take visitors to the museum all the time too- especially since it's right across the street from the Riverwalk and riverboat ride attractions.

We've lived in Augusta for 14 years and this was our first visit. Kids had a blast with the interactive displays and my wife and I learned a ton of new things about this city we call home. Will definitely be returning again!

Visiting the museum was honestly more interesting than I thought it would be. There was a lot of information and artifacts on Augusta's history from pre-historic times to the present. My favorite part of the museum was the giant, real train that was used to move passengers and materials from Atlanta to Augusta and back for years. There was also lots of information and artifacts on James Brown and the Masters. A must visit for all, and super cheap too ($4 for adults 19+, $2 for children)

Surprisingly well done museum. Had a lot more to offer than I had anticipated. Would recommend if you have the time.
