Even though the museum is physically closed, our programs are continuing at other sites across the LMU campus! The ALLM offers a variety of programs for the general public, school groups, and area teachers.  Whether you are 0 or 99, the Museum has a program for you. Many programs focus on significant events in Lincoln's life.  The tragic Civil War years also receive their fair share of Museum projects.  For additional information about annual or upcoming programs and events, contact us by calling Program Coordinator Natalie Sweet at [email protected]

Tad's Tots: A Free Monthly Program for Children 0-5 and their Caretakers

Abe Lincoln Crosses the Creek

Carnegie Vincent Library at Lincoln Memorial University

For October's Tad's Tots story, we'll be learning about tall tales. Together, we will read Abe Lincoln Crosses a Creek: A Tall, Thin Tale, a story about Lincoln and his forgotten frontier friend. We'll talk about how to be safe around water, friendship, and stories, and together we'll also make a special craft. 

Tad's Tots is always a free event, but registration is required. If you register and are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make spaces available for this popular program.

Registration required, and a limited number of spots are available. Please call 423.869.6607 or register here
