Lucy Craft Laney Museum

Location: 116 Philips Street, Augusta, GA 30901

The Lucy Craft Laney Museum is the only African American Museum in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA, Augusta and its surrounding areas). The museum, which opened in 1991, is a small house museum that was the former home of Miss Lucy Craft Laney.

The museum is located in the Historic Laney-Walker District, near the original site of the Haines Normal and Industrial Institute. The mission of the Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History is to promote the legacy of Ms. Lucy Craft Laney through arts and history. We accomplish this awesome task by educating and exposing children and adults of the CSRA, the State and beyond to the arts, history, literature and leadership through exhibits and programs." - Lucy Laney Craft Museum of Black History

University of South Carolina Museum of Education

USC Museum of Education

Location: Wardlaw Hall - University of South Carolina - Columbia, SC 29208

"Once housing an extensive archival collection of educational materials, the Museum of Education now serves exclusively as a museum with its exhibitions, publications, and programs portraying the perennial issues of education as a means to generate thoughtful discussion among members of the university community and general public.

Residing within the College of Education building, Wardlaw Hall, the Museum of Education includes a gallery, The Chester C. Travelstead Seminar Room, an outdoor patio, and closed-archival area totaling over 3000 square feet. By the standards of public museums, the Museum remains a small and highly-focused research/public programming entity." - USC Museum of Education
