SPRINGFIELD — The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield plans to reopen for visitors Wednesday after shutting down as part of statewide efforts to limit spread of the coronavirus.

Museum officials said the property has been cleaned and protective barriers also have been installed in some places.

Tickets must be purchased in advance online or over the phone.

Visitors will have their temperatures checked before entering, must wear masks and will be asked to stay one “Lincoln” apart, a nod to the former president’s height of 6 feet, 4 inches. 

COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving story, and we are working hard to bring you the most up-to-date information. We recommend checking the Coronavirus Information Center for the most recent numbers and guidance.
