“Memorable Experience”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

You will love to visit this place again and again, the fist starts with a presentation , on Lincoln and war time politics , anti slavery movement, the part I liked was information handling of the injured during the war, Ambulances etc. You can have a photograph of yours with the Lincoln family. I wished I had sufficient time to spend in the library.

“A really great museum!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

I finally got to visit here a few months ago, and was not disappointed. For a person who admires Abe Lincoln, this is a great place to go! The is so much see and learn here, not only about his presidency, but his life in general.

“Well done”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Even though the venue was packed it was enjoyable and very informative. And there was a Subway in the museum so we did not have to leave to have lunch. Cool

“Jewel of Springfield”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Of all the Lincoln sites available in the Springfield / Petersburg area - Do not miss this one. It is the diamond jewel of the city. Many of the sites are interesting and worth the visit, however, this covers Lincoln's life the best along with the Civil War. Don't Miss this Site.

“An Enjoyable Afternoon”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We were pleasantly surprised how much our nine-year old son enjoyed our trip to the Museum. We were able to take our time, and see everything in about three hours. My husband and I could have spent more time really reading all of the facts and information posted, but knew that our son was getting a bit antsy. This was a great start to introducing our son to museums and exhibits. We can't wait to go back!
