    No trip to Springfield is complete without a tour of our beloved 16th president's home. Walk through the very rooms the Lincoln family carried out their daily lives before moving to the White House!

    Классный музей. Бесплатный. Просто оставьте им немного пожертвований, напишите отзыв и купите какую-нибудь ерунду в сувенирной лавке.

    Make sure you run your hand along the handrail on the stairs. It's one of the few things that you are allowed to touch in the house that Lincoln touched as well.

    Watch your step through the neighborhood, as the wooden boardwalk slats can be uneven in some places. Also, go on the tour; it's totally worth the free admission price.

    The neighborhood around Lincoln's home and the home itself are truly wonderful places to spend some time.

    It's definitely worth the time to go see it! Ask about the free jr. ranger program for added fun/ education for kids! Our tour guide even made it fun for our little ones!

    Visit the neighborhood Abraham Lincoln lived in! An entire block of 19th century homes have been preserved! Free ranger-led tours of Lincoln's house, first come first serve.

    Mary Todd, who was pursued by Stephen A Douglas and Abraham Lincoln, went insane for very good reasons.

    admission is free but you have to get a ticket at the Visitor's Center. best to go on a good weather day so you can walk around the neighborhood. definitely worth visiting.

    Nice place to visit. Very inexpensive thanks to Lincoln's son Robert ordering that admision to the home was never to be charged.
