It is a small museum but has a nice collection devoted to Lincoln In particular I like the life size model of the man and his wife. He surely was tall and thin as the proverbial rail.

We visit here at least once a year. The Abraham Lincoln room is packed full of very good Lincoln history. We love walking the past streets of Plymouth. Feels like stepping back in time. The dollhouse is always a favorite. We really enjoyed the fashion history show of clothes that is new display. The staff is always eager to help.... More

This museum is small and from the outside you wouldn't expect much, but it's actually filled with interesting things both from Plymouth's considerable history and also a number of iconic early American items. It is absolutely worth the time to take a walk through if you happen to catch them open.

I must admit - I had a special interest in this museum, as my dad has a couple ties to local business, so being here with him was especially meaningful to me. But even for someone without the personal interest, this museum is full of interesting, informative exhibits. The Daisy exhibit had special meaning to me, as my dad worked... More

The upper level is a series of shop fronts filled with local and made in America products. I even saw a few things I own.

This place is tucked away in downtown Plymouth. I drove past it dozens of times without hardly noticing. We went there because my son needed to have a cultural event for school. I was amazed at all of the things they had. A lot of it brought back childhood memories. We went when they had the Lincoln exhibit, which was... More

This museum was truly fun and very pleasurable to walk through. The cost is relatively small, and they have a number of rotating exhibits. The staff of volunteers was very pleasant, and I'd go back again.

We visited when the WWII exhibit was on display. The museum is two floors with the upstairs being larger than down. Admission is five dollars, and I felt that it was worth the price. The artifacts are displayed nicely. It is obvious a lot of time and thought went into the exhibits. The Lincoln room was impressive because of the... More

The Lincoln Room has an amazing collection of Abraham Lincoln's memoriabilia that becomes the story of his life. Much of the collection was collected by a historian and donated to the museum. Volunteer attendant very knowledgeable and interesing. The 2 floors are a walk down the history of American Life, including special exhibits that occur periodically. Since it is in... More
