Mission Statement :

The Lyceum provides visitors with a unique historical experience through exhibitions, programs, special events, the sale of merchandise in The Lyceum Museum Shop and rental of the facility. As both a general community history museum and a historic site, the institution's mission is further divided into two primary goals: first, to preserve and interpret the history and material culture of Alexandria and the surrounding region and, secondly, to protect, preserve and interpret the historic site known as The Lyceum. In pursuit of these goals, the museum staff follows an active collections program, develops and mounts exhibitions, produces public programs and school tours, and hosts a variety of other activities. The Lyceum regularly works with other historic sites and museums to bring about a more in-depth appreciation of the community's history.
