We were amazed at how up to date and interactive this museum was. Beautiful building and exhibits with latest video technology. Exhibits were well-designed and did a great job of telling the Lincoln story. Don't miss the Civil war exhibit and Ghosts of Lincoln theatre.

I don’t know. I was with a friend and she purchased a membership. It gave us admission for a year to this and many other museums around the country. Call the museum, they are very helpful. Enjoy your visit.
