Welcome to the Augusta Museum of History
The Augusta Museum of History collects, preserves, and interprets history in relation to the past of Augusta and Central Savannah River region for the education and enrichment of present and future generations.
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. The not-for-profit agency 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 CSRA and functions as a historical research and resource center for professional and amateur historians, media, organizations, and individuals, and is home to permanent exhibition Augusta's Story, a 12,000 year journey through the region's past.
