In the spirit of Smithsonian Museums, which offer free admission everyday, Museum Day is an annual event hosted by Smithsonian magazine in which participating museums acros the country open their doors to anyone presenting a Museum Day Ticket…for free. President Lincoln’s Cottage is proud to participate this year, which means we will be offering free admission to all those that present their Smithsonian Museum Day ticket.
To reserve these special tickets visit: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/museumday/venues/President-Lincolns-Cottage.html
Since opening to the public in 2008, President Lincoln’s Cottage has become more and more popular with tourists, locals, school groups, etc. We ALWAYS encourage our visitors to reserve their tickets in advance, even on Museum Day. After you have obtained your free admission ticket through the Smithsonian Museum Day website, you should then call (202) 829-0436 x31232 to redeem your ticket and reserve a tour time. We cannot guarantee a spot on one of our tours without a reservation. Walk-ins will be accomodated as available.
We hope to see you at the Cottage on Saturday!
