“Gotta Go!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

My husband does not like museums. He loved this place. It has the right mix of novelty, history and wow factor to keep your interest. The folks working there are very helpful as well.

“Awesome Just Awesome”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Defiantly a Must Do when in Springfield the whole museum was knowledgeable and just awesome with a lot a original artifacts from the time frame and the Lincolns. When you enter the museum go through the timeline by starting out going through the log cabin and learn about Lincoln as a young man in Kentucky then move to the White house part and learn about the Lincoln's time in the White house and during the war all the way up the assassination make you stop an all the little virtual presentations along the way. I also recommend seeing the Ghost presentation it was very mind blowing

This museum experience is totally awesome! The history of Abraham's life and presidency is depicted so genuine and wonderful. It was a high tech and tasteful as well as an educational and emotional experience. Loved it! It truly tells his story and the story of the nation during those times. Highly Recommended!!!
