Fodor's Review

Housed in a converted mill, this museum traces Augusta's important role in developing Georgia's textile industry. The looms are still powered by the building's original turbines (which you can see in action); they also provide the power to juice up the museum's Petersburg canal boats. Tours of the canal, usually one hour long, start here and are a fascinating trip through history. Guides are well versed in the passing sights, which include assorted wildlife, a working 19th-century textile mill, and two of Georgia's only remaining 18th-century houses.
