Lincoln Heritage Museum at Lincoln College will open its doors free
of charge on Saturday September 23, 2017, as part of Smithsonian
magazine’s thirteenth annual Museum Day Live!, an initiative in
which participating museums across the United States emulate the
spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based
facilities, which offer free admission every day, and open their
doors for free to those who download a Museum Day Live! ticket.
Smithsonian recognizes the extraordinary power of museums, and other
cultural institutions, to provide visitors with insight and
inspiration. The event represents a nationwide commitment to
boundless curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge wherever you are.
Over 200,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and
this year’s event is expected to attract more museum-goers than ever
“We are honored and excited to partner with the Smithsonian on this
initiative to increase the awareness of the cultural impact of local
museums within our community. It is my hope that this special day
may prompt those who have not visited the Lincoln Heritage Museum at
Lincoln College to come see what we have to offer and learn more
about the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln and his connection to
the local community.” stated Tom McLaughlin, Director of the Lincoln
Heritage Museum at Lincoln College.
the Lincoln Heritage Museum at Lincoln College, guests will not only
see rare artifacts surrounding the life of Abraham Lincoln, but will
also be able to view the new exhibit, “Lovers of Liberty, Take
Courage!” which tells various stories of courage from notable
figures during Mr. Lincoln’s time. In addition, guests will also be
able to “see, hear, and touch” history while experiencing the second
floor interactive exhibit.
