The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will close once again to help stop the spread of COVID-19. They will close for at least a month starting on Friday, November 20th. The annual display of the Gettysburg Address will be postponed until sometime in 2021.
Members of the public will not be able to visit, but the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum staff will continue working to protect Lincoln documents and artifacts, and maintain the exhibits.
Melissa Coultas is the Acting Director of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and she said, “As coronavirus surges again, public health has to be the top priority. We look forward to the day when we can safely welcome guests again.”
Anyone who has bought tickets to the museum or to upcoming events will receive a refund. For more information please visit PresidentLincoln.Illinois.gov.
