AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Lucy Craft Laney Museum of Black History has reopened at 1116 Phillips St.

The museum was closed due to COVID and then for 10 additional months for major renovations to the 111-year-old building. Renovations included installing a new elevator and making extensive repairs to the inside and outside of the building.

The museum said it would like to recognize Bank of America for its support of the museum, including sponsoring the reopening by providing four weeks of free admission for the community during June.

“We believe in the power of the arts to help economies thrive, and we are proud to continue our partnership with the Lucy Craft Laney Museum,” said Ora Parish, president of the Bank of America of Greater Augusta/Aiken.

The museum is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
