Learning experiences with the History Center don‘t end at the gallery doors. Join us in expanding our skills and following our curiosity as we venter offsite or welcome the community onto The Grounds.


See and experience regional cultural and historical sites with your fellow members! Excursions generally include a boxed lunch and a semi-private tour of our destination including behind-the-scenes experiences.

Past excursions include Andersonville National Historic Site, Goodwood Museum & Gardens, and Wakulla Springs State Park.


You’re invited to Hangout at the History Center! Join us for spring and fall editions to enjoy good music and good company. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own picnic and enjoy lawn games, bowling in the 1896 Ewart Alley, and live music from local artists. This event is presented free of charge and is open to all neighbors and community members.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact the History Center to support this event!

Lectures & Do You Remember

Whether a part of a series or an individual lecture presented in community partnership, these programs offer the chance to learn something new, share in community memories, and discuss current scholarship.

Do You Remember?
“Do You Remember?” programs consist of a panel of local “experts” who share their memories and experiences about a local business or event with added audience participation of sharing stories and asking questions. A presentation of photos, archival materials, and artifacts accompany the discussion.

Slides of March
A long-held tradition of the Thomasville History Center, our spring lecture series brings together community and scholars to learn from local, regional, and national experts in the fields of history, archaeology, ecology, and more.

Show & Tell

Ever wondered what treasures a museum accepts into the collection? Come along with the History Center back in time to elementary school for our very own version of Show & Tell each February.

Show & Tell coincides with the Georgia Historical Society’s Super Museum Sunday and welcomes all community members as well as friends new and old to see (and carefully handle!) artifacts accessioned into the collection in the previous calendar year. The afternoon also includes behind-the-scenes tours of collections storage! Late in the afternoon, members, neighbors, and the Board gather for a brief business meeting to welcome the new year of activities. This meeting is open to all.

Super Museum Sunday, a component of the Georgia History Festival, is a free event that brings together cultural heritage sites across the state for an afternoon of experiences and discovery.


Try your skills at a historic handicraft. Taught by local experts, Hands-On Heritage Workshops are a great opportunity to learn a new craft or build upon existing skills. Each workshop is rated on our “Craft Scale” so you’ll know what you’re getting into.

Past workshops include cane footstools, double-bottom baskets, and rug hooking. If you have a suggestion for a Hands-On workshop or are interested in teaching, please contact us!
