Lincoln museum offers special coupon via Facebook

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The New Year is bringing new savings for families visiting the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield.

Families who download a special coupon found on Facebook will pay a $10 admission fee for the whole family.

The deal is valid every Sunday for the month of January.

Officials say the family must consist of at least one parent and can include any number of directly related children.

The normal price of admission is $12 per adult and $6 per child.

Museum visitors can see one of the museum's permanent exhibit galleries, "The Tide Turns," which features a section on the 13th Amendment. That's the official act that abolished slavery and the central issue in the recently released "Lincoln" film.
