The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will be offering free admission on Monday to celebrate sixteen years of America’s 16th President. There will even be a drawing for a golden ticket that will mean one lucky person will win a gift basket filled with Lincoln goodies, from socks to a coffee mug and trivia game. It has a retail value of $210.
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum opened on April 19th, 2005. There have been more than 5 million people to visit the Museum. If you are wanting to go you are still asked to reserve a spot by going online to www.PresidentLincoln.Illinois.gov. Guests are required to wear face masks, undergo screenings, and maintain social distance.
Free admission is one day only for adults, but the museum is offering free admission for all Illinois students and college students (to the age of 21) through the end of May. The museum has over 12 million items pertaining to all aspects of Illinois history. For more information find the Museum on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or visit www.PresidentLincoln.Illinois.gov.
