Good Morning Gallery In-Person

Start the day with your corporate team, association staff, convention attendees, or social group at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum with a Good Morning Gallery In-Person event.

Good Morning Gallery offers one group per day of 10 to 50 people the opportunity to explore the current Illinois Gallery special exhibit at the Museum before we open for the day and have an interactive discussion with the ALPLM Exhibits Director about the exhibit “The State of Sound: A World of Music from Illinois.”

The event is offered weekdays at 8:00 a.m. through the run of the exhibit (January 23, 2022). We recommend planning for an hour to an hour-and-a-half for a Good Morning Gallery experience. The cost is $15/person.

Several Add-On Offerings are available to customize your morning at the Museum:

Visit the Museum

Extend your visit and see the other exhibits and theaters presentations at the Museum dedicated to telling Lincoln’s great American story for an additional $5/person.

Breakfast Catering

Enjoy a delicious onsite or takeaway breakfast as part of your Good Morning Gallery. Choose a takeaway, individually packaged breakfast or an onsite breakfast set up outside the Illinois Gallery.
