The official foursquare location of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. We are open daily from 9am-5pm.
The films (which aren't really films but 3D-type shows) are very cool. They don't provide much in-depth info, but for a quick overview of Lincoln and the era, they are worth the time.
Great galleries of his life
Ghosts in the Library
Absolutely incredible museum. The detail is astounding. Don't miss the two shows, they're amazing!
It is very cold in here for a July day- bring a wrap or jacket
A 'don't miss' when visiting Springfield. It was well worth the price of admission. My 12 y/o grandson was fascinated.
Awesome museum, very interactive. Great for kids third/fourth grade and up.
See the ghosts show its awesome.
Plan to come on a day when the library is open and give yourself enough time to also go to Lincoln's Tomb.
Don't go backwards. You'll find out he dies and it'll ruin the rest of the museum.
When journeying through the White House portion, be sure to watch the "Civil War in 4 Minutes" video. It gives quite an impression of the enormous scope and scale of the war.
This is probably one of the best museums I've ever been to! Plus the staff was very friendly.
Great place to learn about our state
Don't Miss Ghosts of the Library and the Lincoln's Eyes show. Both are worth every penny spent on Admission to the Museum.
Absolutely wonderful experience. Very cool exhibits and a very friendly staff
Have to atleast see Ghosts of the Library.
Nice place and very educational but not worth the $12 for adults. Not much here.
The 2 shows are must-see. Especially the Holavision one. So cool
FANTASTIC. See everything!
The Everett copy of the Gettysburg address is occasionally on display from the vault. Check with staff if its out for viewing.
For small children the Through Lincoln's Eyes movie is kind of scary. War scene w/ loud noises,shaking,flashing,and smoke from "cannons" in the walls. There is a fun hands on play area for kids
Love the presidential campaign TV spots!
Be sure to bring in a jacket or sweatshirt....it's cold! Great museum! As others have said - don't miss the two shows, especially Ghosts of the Library.
Hands down one if the best museums I've every been to. Worth a stop if you're in Springfield!
Great place to be and work :-)
a fabulous museum. the two walking tours are excellent - they tell the story of Lincoln's life. the Ghosts of the Museum presentation is a MUST SEE!
Make sure you allow time to fully explore the Museum. So many great exhibit!
Bring a jacket. The air was cranked up in August
The Ghosts in the Library exhibit is a must see! Amazing!
Great museum, but all the wax figures get slightly creepy
If you're pressing a penny and you want a ghosting of Lincoln's head on the embossed side, make sure the "heads" side of the coin is facing right and the "tails" is left.
Opened in 2005 it is ranked as the most visited state-controlled presidential museum. This museum documents the life of the 16th U.S. President, Abraham Lincoln, & the course of the American Civil War
Wonderful exhibits. The shows are great (especialy Ghosts of the Library).
Watch out for the no photography signs in certain areas. Douche-bag security guards will make you erase pictures.
Great way to spend the afternoon, Don't miss the Ghosts of the Library, worth going just for that.
