This is a must see while in Augusta. This exhibit is a real walk through the time line and history of the area. Much of the history of the canal can't be seen except from the canal. The tour guides are exceptional in their knowledge of times & events and make it a fun adventure for all.
So pleased you enjoyed your visit. Our tour guides appreciate the shout-out, too. 更多
Provides great insight into the textile industry in the area as well as the history of the Augusta canal. Most recommended is to take a tour by canal boat up to the Savanna Rapids.
This tour, which is included if you buy a Boat Tour of the Canal is very informative and interesting. Great value for the price. It also has a tiny gift shop inside. I especially love to go on the boat tours.
I took the canal tour and as part of that I could go to the museum. Unfortunately, I got there 20 minutes before closing. I was able to watch the introductory video and walk around the museum quickly. Would like to visit again when I have more time.
Thanks for the review. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Hope your can come back when you have more time. By... 更多
We initially only planned to sleep in Augusta and then continue driving on into South Carolina. Then we learned about the Augusta Canal and the Augusta Canal Visitor’s Center. So we planned a 24 hour visit… and we had a blast! We called the Canal Visitor’s Center and Jeff was a great help the weekend before we left, as he... 更多

My son and his class went here on a school field trip. It was interesting in that you learn some of Augusta's local history. You learn about how cotton was transported and how the river was used, there is some Civil War history involved as well. The highlight to me was the Canal boat ride. Nice scenic views, quiet and... 更多
This is great for all ages. The Interpretive Center is very interesting to walk through. The canal was important to Augusta and this is an informative way to learn about it. Sometimes there is someone there working the machines. Do not skip the boat tour of the canal. Very well done. The fee is reasonable.
No thrill. Not really impressed with curator who was on phone while we waited to ask questions. Eventually we left, disappointed. Our son, who is a Boy Scout, picked this place at random because it was listed as a landmark and could have been helpful in meeting a requirement for a merit badge.
My little girl was looking for adventure! I decided we need to take the canal tour! This is a special heritage of Augusta & now it is a National Park. We walk the tow path and visit the beautiful head gates. I thought we need to ride down the canal & see where the hydro power is still produced for... 更多
Glad you and your daughter enjoyed your time at the Canal. By the way, this summer we have a new... 更多
This place is full of Augusta history. The displays are a little dated and some don't work anymore, but it's a cool, clean place to learn a lot about Augusta's history in a short time. Definitely worth the stop. The canal boat ride is pretty cool, too. Be prepared for the heat and the sun, though.
Thanks for the review. We're hoping to update some of the electronics on some of our exhibits next year. 更多
