Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum

Museum Closure

The Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum's doors are currently closed for a $3.6 million expansion project, which is expected to last until late 2020. The closing will move the museum improvement project into its final phase, which includes the addition of new galleries, an elevator, new restrooms, and a learning laboratory to help visitors experience LMU’s extensive collection which covers the life of Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War and the founding of the University.

We look forward to welcoming the community back in late 2020! Until then, if you are a community organization or a school group, please reach out to our program coordinator, Natalie Sweet, about the potential to bring programming to you either in person or digitally. She can be reached at [email protected]
