“Engaging and interesting”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

The movie and other 'theatrical' were very good.

The exhibits and the building itself were excellent.

Definitely a Springfield must do!

“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
