Lyceum is an album by The Orchids, released on Sarah Records in 1989.

It was the first album release by the group (and also by the label) and was originally only available as an 8 track, 10" mini-album on vinyl. As was usual for albums on Sarah Records, no singles were released from it, although the later 2005 reissue contained all the early singles.

It was reviewed in Melody Maker as "Another fountainhead of unqualified greatness".
