President Lincoln’s Cottage is temporarily closed as part of the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We both represent and serve vulnerable populations, including hundreds of U.S. veterans with whom we are honored to share this historic campus. The safety and health of our community is our priority.
During this time, our team, including full time and hourly staff, is working remotely to advance our mission. Although all onsite tours and programs are suspended for the duration of our closure, we invite you to connect with us remotely.

Support President Lincoln’s Cottage
President Lincoln’s Cottage is the only National Monument in the country that does not receive federal operating support. We typically rely on a healthy mix of donations, grants, and earned income through ticket, store, and event sales. We’re facing a significant, six-figure shortfall every month we’re closed. We are pursuing all available options. You can help.
Give the gift of a future visit to President Lincoln’s Cottage. Purchase an e-gift card that can be used when we re-open for tour tickets, or in our museum shop.
If you purchased a ticket during our closure period you will receive an email from President Lincoln’s Cottage that includes options for donating, rescheduling, or refunding. For further assistance, please email Info@lincolncottage.org.
We are monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and DC Department of Health in order to protect the safety and health of our visitors, volunteers, staff, and community.
