Great museum covering the history of Augusta. Some minor information on early native settlement, then gradually more on the Colonial and Federal periods. More coverage on the Antebellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction periods, but Augusta was more active by then as well. There are some really cool exhibits, especially for kids. There is a full size steam engine and a Pullman passenger car that you can walk through. There is also an electric street car you can walk through. Upstairs there are some exhibits on what makes Augusta special - golf (of course), prominent historical citizens, and an entire exhibit featuring James Brown. A lot of value for the price. Our family of 5 was $12 total. We will probably come back again - definitely a place we would bring visitors looking for key things to hit in Augusta.

This was a wonderful place to check out! Its educational in an interactive, interesting, and engaging way which makes it a great time for people of all ages. My son loved getting on the train and seeing what life looked like from the eyes of his grandparents and great parents. I highly recommend and plan to go again to explore further.

This was a beautifully maintained facility full of fascinating history that was educationally fun for my whole family! I plan to visit again and would strongly encourage others in the area to check it out!

Even if there is not a special Exhibit in residence, this is a great place to go and wander around and learn about many of the things that have contributed to making our State what it is today. There is something for everyone here. Regardless of what your specific area of interest might be, so many aspects of history are presented that you are bound to come upon something that will engage you. Well worth the price of admission!

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.
