The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum is offering a new guided tour focused on Mary Todd Lincoln. The tour will take guests through the museum to learn more about Mary's life before, during and after her relationship with Abraham Lincoln. During the tour, interpreters will lead a discussion of her crucial contributions to Lincoln's political career and her influence during the White House years. Visitors will hear engaging stories about Mary and learn about the losses she had to endure throughout her life and how those losses contributed to her behavior, especially in her later years. The tour may lead visitors to consider the age-old question of whether or not she was insane. The answer, much like Mary, is complicated. The tours will be offered twice each Wednesday from Jan. 8 through March 11 and are included with museum admission. Reservations will not be taken online. Guests may sign up in person or by phone on the day of the tour. illinois.gov/alplm.
