The regular admission fee for the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum is $12 for adults, $9 for senior citizens 62 and up, $9 for students with an ID, $7 for active duty military personnel, and $6 for children ages 5-15. Children under five are admitted free.
The Illinois State Museum will also be participating in Museum Day. Admission to the State Museum is free every day, so no tickets are needed.
