Lucy Craft Laney Museum Programs

Tours and Exhibits
Guided tours through the museum's permanent exhibition - the Lucy Craft Laney Exhibition, the Pilgrim Health and LIfe Insurance Exhibition, the Alice Davis Collection, and the Augusta Ebony Legacy Collection - provides visitors with an overview of Black Augustan's contributions at the local, state, national, and international levels.


Black Heritage Trolley Tours
The Lucy Craft Laney Museum's Black Heritage Trolley Tour is a one-hour excursion that takes patrons to over 30 significant historic sites related to Augusta's Black history and the city's development. The trolley tour is paired with the one-hour guided museum tour. Conventions, family reunions, and special event tours are welcome.

The Children's Academy
In the summer of 1930, Dr. Mordecai Johnson, President of Howard University, named Miss Laney "Mother of the Children of the People."

The museum continues to serve "the children of the people" through the Lucy Craft Laney Children's Academy. The program supports state mandated curriculum. Students ages 6-12 acquire continuous learning experiences throught filed trips and other hans-on learning activities.

Teens have the opportunity to gain leadership experience as volunteer staff assistants.


Outreach Programs
The Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History organizes events and tailored presentations that uplift and inform the Augusta community. The Travelling Exhibition, a condensed view of Miss Laney's life, can be loaned to hosting organizations.

Monthly Senior Luncheons
On the second Wednesday of each month area seniors and working professionals are invited to enjoy lectures on a variety of topics, while dining on food from our city’s finest restaurants. As one of our oldest traditions at the museum, the senior luncheons are an interactive occasion.

The cost of the luncheon is $11. Please RSVP with us at 706-724-3576.

 

Monthly Health Initiative
The museum sustains Miss Laney's advocacy for health. In partnership with Augusta University, Phi Chi Chapter of Chi Eta Phi, Inc., and Queensborough National Bank and Trust, free monthly health events are held throughout the city. Medical Professionals screen vital signs that include blood pressure, gluo=cose, vision, weight, mental and oral health. Referrals are made when either deemed medically necessary or requested.

The Period and Butterfly Gardens
While you're visiting the Lucy Craft Laney Museum, take a moment to stroll through our beautiful Period Garden. The garden was encouraged by Mrs. Hertha Blount and created as an addition to the museum in 1995. A student from the University of Georgia Horticulture Department designed the space to include plants that would have grown there during Ms. Laney's life time. These plants include Dogwoods, Irises, Roses, and Azaleas. A highlight of the gardens is the statue of Lucy Craft Laney, designed by Norman Hughes, a local artist. This section of the garden, dedicated to the memory of Ms. Laney, includes commemorative bricks with the names of all who purchased bricks in honor of Ms. Laney and others.
