Augusta Museum Of History

Founded in 1937, the Augusta Museum of History is Augusta’s oldest historical agency devoted to the preservation and presentation of local and regional history. It functions as the steward of the community’s rich, diverse and invaluable material past. The museum curates the largest and most significant historical collection in the Central Savannah River Area (CRSA) and functions as a historical research and resource center for professional and amateur historians, media, organizations and individuals. The museum is best known for its award-winning Augusta Story exhibit, exploring the region's past 12,000 years.
