Government Shutdown Update

During the government shutdown, the Aftermath Exhibits in the Center for Education and Leadership will be open for daytime visitation. The historic site (theatre, museum, Petersen House) will be closed for daytime visitation. Performances of "Twelve Angry Men" will go on as scheduled.

Join Generation Abe and stay up-to-date with upcoming events.

Stay late, hang out with other arts and history fans, enjoy complimentary beer and wine, and see our historic site in a brand new light.

Highly recommend attending an after-hours event here to avoid the crowds of tourists and have a more intimate experience. #GenAbe –
