Event Details

As is traditional, museum admission will be free on Lincoln’s Birthday. However, guests must schedule their visits in advance.

Guests can enjoy live music in the museum plaza throughout the day and meet Abraham Lincoln from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. He will be joined by Mrs. Lincoln from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The first 100 young visitors will receive a special gift.

The museum is also putting some particularly interesting Lincoln items on display in the Treasures Gallery. They include a cuff link the president was wearing on the night he was assassinated, china from the Lincoln White House and a slip of paper on which Lincoln wrote his definition of democracy: “As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no democracy.”
