Plan Your Visit
Carl Sandburg Home NHS is open 7 days a week, year round. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Days.
House Tour Notice - The Sandburg furnishings inside the home have been moved to storage for preservation work over the next two years. Special exhibits will help visitors to see the rooms as they were once furnished, but at the same time feel like they are going "behind the scenes" in the unfurnished rooms. Guided tours of the home are still available and provide a great way to learn more about the Sandburg family and their contributions to American history.
Facilities: Including Sandburg Home and Goat Barn Open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. year-round, closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Days. Park grounds are open sunup to sundown for walking and hiking.
Admission: Free for grounds, trails and barn; no park entrance fee.
Guided House Tour Fee: (cash or check only)
Parking: Free parking is available at the entrance to the park. On busy days the lot fills quickly. Visitors may use the Flat Rock Playhouse lot directly across the street in the morning until noon and in the afternoon when there are no performances. There will be signs posted at the playhouse to restrict parking for performances. Please be a courteous neighbor and pay attention to their signs. The park has three oversize vehicle parking spaces for RV's and buses. Vehicles with trailers will be unable to park in these spaces and should use the playhouse lot subject to availability.
