Mrs. Lincoln’s Favorite Things Evening Tour, Mary Todd Lincoln House
December 13, 2016 @ 5:00 am - 8:00 pm
The Mary Todd Lincoln House will celebrate Mrs. Lincoln’s 198th birthday with a themed tour titled Mrs. Lincoln’s Favorite Things. This guided tour explores her varied tastes– from fashion to French. Light refreshments, including her famous white cake, will complete the tour.
Tours begin at 5pm, 6pm, and 7pm, and last approximately 1 hour.
Mrs. Lincoln’s Favorite Things is a part of the museum’s themed tour series. While the standard tour covers Mary Lincoln’s entire biography, themed tours take a closer look at special topics related to Mrs. Lincoln and her life. Tours are also limited to no more than 15 people per tour. “The themed tours provide the opportunity for a very personal experience,” says director Gwen Thompson. “Each tour group essentially has the house to themselves with their guide.”
Reservations required. Admission $15 for individuals, $13 per person with a group of four or more, and $10 per person for members and their guests. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
