  • 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.

Fees & Reservations

Entrance Fee: Lincoln Home National Historic Site has no entrance fee. A free tour ticket is needed to enter the Lincoln Home.


Free Tour Ticket:
The only entry to the Lincoln Home is by a ranger guided tour. Obtain a free tour ticket at the Visitor Center Information Desk. Due to heavy visitation during the Lincoln Bicentennial year, visitors are encouraged to arrive as early as possible to receive tickets to tour the home. The last tour begins at 4:30. On busy days, tickets may run out prior to 4:30.


School groups, charter tours, or other groups of 15 or more must reserve Lincoln Home tours in advance by contacting the Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau as soon as possible. School groups planning to visit in April, May or October should schedule approximately 6 months in advance.


Parking Fee: Parking is available in the visitor parking lot on a daily basis. The charge, payable at the Visitor Center information desk, is $2.00 per hour.


While there is no entrance fee, we do encourage all visitors to support the park through donations, which can be made in the Visitor Center and in the backyard of the Lincoln Home after your tour.
