Mary's Bicentennial Birthday Bash

Join us for a lively open house to celebrate Mary’s 200th birthday with six activities scattered throughout the museum! Experience our distinctly Mary Lincoln twist on a birthday party- from music to games.  

Listen to music performed by the woodwind quintet of the Kentucky National Guard, test your puzzle-solving skills to unlock boxes of party-favor prizes, sample Mary’s famous almond cake, and take your picture at our selfie station. Also compete in trivia, scavenger, and memory challenges to win “Mary Money” to spend in our museum store.

Doors open at 5:00 PM and you may arrive at any time until 6:30 PM. Activities will take about one hour to complete after you enter. Recommended for ages 10 and up. $15 adults/$13 for groups of 4+/$10 for members/ $10 for youth (under 18). Tickets may be purchased at the door or online below.

Free parking is located directly behind the museum. Overflow parking at the Main Street Baptist Church. Downtown metered parking is free after 5pm.
