3 Great Reasons to Celebrate July 4th Weekend
at Truman's Presidential Museum

1) Experience Lincoln: The Constitution & The Civil War

The Truman Library is now presenting a special exhibition from the National Constitution Center: Lincoln: The Constitution & The Civil War. This popular, interactive exhibition takes visitors back to 1860. With a nation perched on the brink of war, would President Lincoln unlock the Constitution to solve secession, civil liberties, and slavery…and save the United States of America?
Made possible by generous support from UMB Bank

2) Save Money with Reduced Admission - JULY 4

On Friday, July 4, adult admission is just $5 (that's one "Honest Abe").
With youth discounts, admission for a family of 4 could be under $15…
about what you'd pay for a single movie ticket and concessions.*

Hailed as America's "best presidential museum" (Dallas Morning News), the Truman Library offers theaters, a Museum Store, and dozens of interactive and hands-on exhibits designed for the entire family. Step into a replica of President Truman's Oval Office, test your presidential mettle in Decision Theaters, and experience some of the most dramatic moments in American history.

Admission includes entrance to Lincoln: The Constitution & The Civil War.
* $3 Youth 6-15; kids 5 and younger are FREE - every day

3) Step Back in Time with a "Lincoln Family Fun Day" - JULY 5

On Saturday, July 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., enjoy Lincoln-era family fun
with the Missouri Town Dancers, 1860s children's games, and make-and-take crafts
led by costumed re-enactors from Missouri Town 1855.


The Harry S. Truman Library and Museum is one of 12 presidential libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. The Truman Library is supported, in part, by the Harry S. Truman Library Institute, the not-for-profit partner of the Truman Library. The Institute seeks to promote, through educational and community programs, a greater appreciation and understanding of American politics, history and culture, the process of governance, and the importance of public service, as exemplified by Harry S. Truman. To learn more, visit TrumanLibrary.org.
