The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is offering free admission to people who are vaccinated against COVID-19.
Officials at the Springfield, Ill. museum announced this week that the offer is good through May and June. Anyone who has received one shot can get a free ticket on the museum’s website.
As Melissa Coultas, acting executive director at the museum, stated, “Vaccination is the key to beating this disease and staying healthy in America.” If the museum can help by providing a little extra incentive, it would be our pleasure to do so.
People claiming a free ticket will have to show a vaccination card at the museum.
Admission is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors or students and $10 for military personnel. There is no charge for kids younger than 5 and a $6 fee for children between 5 and 15.
Visitors to the museum must wear a mask. The museum also limits the number of people inside.
