  • Excellent Museum. Went here to see the James Brown Museum. It was very well displayed along with many other Augusta history. Friendly front desk personnel.

  • That's a very cool museum. We usually go there several times a year - it has so many things! A lot about Civil War history, pictures, clothes, old style guns and ammo; there is also a lot of...

  • We went back to the museum after not having been there for a couple of years. It still amazes me that a relatively small town (compared to larger metroploitan areas) could build and maintain a...

  • This last visit wasn’t to go through the museum. We went for Lego house display. They have gingerbread houses in the fall and they did the Lego. I don’t know if they always do it. This is the first I knew of it. It was very cool. On the regular mail all through it is amazing as well. There is so much to see with lots of information and history given. Even a theater with history documentary playing at times. Several train cars. An actual river boat. It has two levels. There is also a big James Brown section. He was from the area. We used to go at least once a year but haven’t been back for a while except to see the houses. Which was free.
  • The Augusta Museum of History basically has it all. Whether you're looking for the world's most comprehensive James Brown exhibit, a fascinating journey through the history of golf, some jaw-dropping car and train history, and/or an extensive collection of artifacts that tell a more complete story of the State of Georgia, you have to come here and see it for yourself. Even if you don't think you're a "big museum person", you'll find plenty of cool stuff for everyone to enjoy.
  • Wow! What a treasure in downtown Augusta. Easy parking, fair fees to get in, and hours of information with an available audio tour. Everything is clean and very well maintained. Very nice display if you are new, passing through, or even a long time resident of the Augusta area.
  • The historical artifacts are on target and life like. In person is the best way to appreciate it and educational. Bring your kids and students.
  • Great experience loved the exhibits. Loved the James Brown display. If you are in town you must visit
