WE ARE ALSO HAPPY TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING DISCOUNT TO MILITARY PERSONNEL AND THEIR FAMILIES.
Veterans and military personnel always get a $5 discount to the presidential museum. That discount is being expanded during the run of “In This Great Struggle.” Spouses of active-duty troops will also get $5 off, and veterans, military personnel and spouses with military ID can bring up to three family members at $5 off the standard adult ticket price or $1 off the youth price.
MAY 2019 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2020
“Return Visit” Sculpture
We have two very special visitors at the museum – President Lincoln and an unnamed “modern man.” Together they make up the sculpture “Return Visit,” which imagines Lincoln returning and talking about his famous Gettysburg Address. The bronze sculpture by Seward Johnson stands 31 feet tall and weighs 37,200 pounds. (The two figures account for 17,200 pounds of that. The base makes up the rest.) “Return Visit” will be on display until September 2020.
