Wednesday, April 15, 2015 (Lincoln Remembered) - 9:30am to 5pm
Come to The Henry Ford Museum for live music, dramatic presentations, make and take activities and much more in Henry Ford Museum. Thanks to the generosity of Target, admission to the Museum and parking are free during Target Family Days. Explore the greatest collection ever assembled documenting the American Experience.
On April 15, during the Target Free Day, the museum will commemorate not just Lincoln’s death, but the life of the man who was one of our most unlikely presidents.
To mark the anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination, guests will have an opportunity to see the chair he was sitting in the night of the attack in a special temporary display on the day of the event. Be sure to also visit With Liberty and Justice for All and see our copy of Lincoln’s crowning achievement — the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which legally abolished slavery throughout the United States.
The chair will be relocated to the front of the With Liberty & Justice for All exhibit for prominent viewing without a case.
