Just wanted to make a comment to another comment I saw on here. If you was that disappointed then maybe u should have called before you came and made a blank trip for nothing. So the fault is on you n...ot because u showed up and the Museum wasn't open its common sense to know if you're coming from somewhere outside of another city or whatever to visit somewhere then maybe the thing to do is to call. Now that would have been smart. And not only that, if Augusta looks like a ghost to you then what does your city look like? And next time how about don't come here at all See More

Wonderful experience! Very nice museum with beautiful exhibits. The shining star on top of it all was the delightful lady in the gift shop, Toni! I am from Oregon and plan to come back some day 😊

We are new to the area and I took my kids to visit for the first time. We had a great time! Loved learning about the history of Augusta! I highly recommend to anyone.

We had a terrific time! I can't believe I was born in the CSRA, lived here almost my whole life, and just made it to see the Augusta Historical Museum this week. So glad my mom and I took the grandkid...s to see it! We really enjoyed doing the scavenger hunt. Friendly people working there too. Afterwards, we walked over to the park on the river and had lunch. Kids had a great time and so did we. We'll definitely be back! See More

Great collection of items that represent Augusta’s history. I was a little upset by the James Brown exhibit. I’m sure The Godfather of soul wouldntnt have wanted the public to see his toiletries but I... guess that’s life. Morbid curiosity. Friendly staff and endless opportunities for those interested in the city’s history. See More

I came specifically to see the James Brown wing. It was really good and I wished it was more because of course you always want to know more. The rest of the museum has other great exhibits too. Throug...hly enjoyed my experience. See More

I really enjoyed my visit
Sometimes I tend to underestimate local places, that's why I have not visited this place since I moved to Augusta 2 years ago.
Yesterday I decided to visit and I liked it a ...lot
Two things I enjoyed is the transportation and gold sections
Two things I did not enjoy at all are the medical and James Brown

I'm from LA, and was visiting a dear friend of mine I hadn't seen in 29 years as a mini reunion along my way to Florida. She has been living in Georgia most of that time. I had flown to Augusta with m...inimal knowledge of the Southern spirit of gentleness and pride, but I immersed and really had a more deeper understanding of the history of Augusta.
I had no idea how beloved James Brown was in Georgia until I saw the entire floor they had dedicated to his legendary work. I stayed at the gorgeous Partridge Inn during my stay and was humbled by a few of the dated photographs displaying its earlier years within the museum. This museum is a treasure. I left with so much more than I paid for. What a gift. �

Was disappointed to find out that they only are open from Thursday to Saturday. I was there on Wednesday and was only in town for a day. Was not impressed with the city as it seemed like a ghost town.

This was life changing expense. My friend asked me to join her to a trip to Augusta Georgia. Stayed at the Marriott Resort Augusta Convention center. Then visited the Augusta museum of history. I h...ad an amazing time touring the museum. James Brown floor and the Augusta Georgia "The Golf Capital of the Nation" . It was worth it. Great wealth of knowledge also took great pictures. See More

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day from the Augusta Museum of History! Here, Ms. Barbara Gant poses with a picture of her 6 year old self. In 1964, Ms. Gant made history when she became the first African American to attend an all-white Richmond County Public School. She recalls that’s the time she didn’t know she was making history, she was just going to school. #mlkjrday #augustamuseumofhistory #celebrateblackhistory
