Arts & Museums
From the era of slavery and America
The Georgia Golf Hall of Fame was created in 1982. Encompassing approximately 17 acres along the banks of the Savannah River along Reynolds Street, this beautiful attraction includes eight acres of gorgeous display gardens! Sculptures of Arnold Palmer, Byron Nelson, Raymond Floyd, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones and Jack Nicklaus all have permanent homes in these gardens!
A range of inspiring art works are on display at this landmark museum in Georgia. The artists from the locality are given a preference in the exhibits. A visit will be exhilarating.
Discover the fun of hands-on science! The National Science Center's Fort Discovery is located on the scenic Riverwalk in downtown Augusta. This 128,000 square-foot family-oriented math and science center fires the imaginations of children and adults by making math, science and technology come alive. Your Fort Discovery experience will be one to remember with 250 hands-on exhibits, custom digital programs in the Paul S. Simon Discovery Theater, a StarLab planetarium, Martian Towers, a Kidscape Gallery for young scientists seven years and under, educational workshops, exciting daily demonstrations in the PowerStation, an indoor lightning storm and our outdoor high-wire bike.
There are 23 permanent galleries filled with award-winning exhibits on Augusta's history including Revolutionary and Civil War weapons and uniforms, Native American culture, and local history. They also have a restored 1917 steam locomotive, a reconstructed 1930's gas station, a replica cotton gin, and a 56 foot Petersburg boat. The history theater features a different film monthly.
Located in a former winter colony mansion, this museum displays items and clothing that reflect the county's history, as well as a nature room that exhibits flora, fauna, and geology of the area. The shell of a temporary observatory, built by German scientists for viewing the Transit of Venus in the late 1800's, is adjacent to the museum.
Founded in 1972, this art center features three galleries that rotate visual art shows for three or six weeks. A variety of art educational classes, art opportunities, and cultural activities are provided by this center.
