About the Exhibition:

This exhibit examines the role that the historically black college and university have played in shaping many of the iconic figures of Augusta.  One need look no further than the namesake of the museum, Lucy Craft Laney, who graduated in 1873 in the first class of the Normal School of Atlanta University.  In addition to the physical exhibit at the Museum, there will be several virtual and interactive components.

Admission is limited to tours of four people and tours must be set up in advance. Available tour times are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 10:30am and 2:30pm. Cost is $7 per person.
