families looking to save a little money after the holidays: The
Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum is offering a bargain admission
price every Sunday in January.
Entire families can go to the museum for just $10 on Sundays. They

significant savings from the normal admission price of $12 per adult

The family must consist of at least one parent and can include
any number of directly related children. The offer cannot be
combined with other discounts or promotions.
Visitors to the museum will be able to enjoy a special display of
items tied to the Battle of Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Address.

are featured in the museum's Treasures Gallery.
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum combines
rigorous scholarship and high-tech showmanship. The museum features
