Lincoln Home Tours During Busy Season
Please be advised that tours of the Lincoln home fill rapidly during our busy summer season. We suggest that you visit the Lincoln Home National Historic Visitor Center early in the day for your best opportunity to receive a tour of the Lincoln home.
The Museum Shop located in the Visitor Center at the Lincoln Home National Historic Site has many items available for purchase: biographies of Abraham and Mary Lincoln, books on specific events in Abraham Lincoln's life, books analyzing Lincoln's significance in history, and books related to the Civil War. The Museum Shop also has apparel, CDs, DVDs, collectable's, souvenirs, and children's items.
The Museum Shop is operated by Eastern National Cooperating Association, a not for profit partner of the National Park Service. Eastern National provides quality educational products and services to the visitors to America's national parks and other public trusts.
Eastern National, chartered in 1948, is an association operating in more than 130 national parks and other public trusts. Its policies and programs are guided by an elected board of directors. The board, the members and the staff are dedicated to the preservation and use of the parks for the benefit of all Americans, visitors from all nations and future generations.
Eastern National proceeds are donated to the National Park Service and their other partners to further support these programs. Since 1947, Eastern National has donated over $77 million to the National Park Service.
