  • Moderate sized museum focused on local Augusta history. A good way to spend a few hours with well designed interactive exhibits.
  • Very informative. Many more exhibits than I expected. Spent a couple of hours in the museum and still didn't read over every exhibit.
  • This museum has so much to offer! We spent more than two hours here and loved every minute. There is a lot of variety to be found here.
  • It was a great experience. We had family visiting from California and decided to go. Unfortunately we came on a Tuesday. The curator told us it was closed but because they had a tour we could go through. After the school tour had left, curators slowly started to close doors on us. Locking my aunt in the James Brown exhibit and my husband and I in the Local Celebrity area. We had some laughs with it, and enjoyed the whole Museum.
  • Lots of interesting stuff here. Staff was really friendly.
