Was a nice tribute to Abraham Lincoln. It was small and if you read everything would only take about 30 mins. It did have artifact and lots of other history not taught in schools. Worth the quick trip in and was free to go in.

Went to visit with family and it was amazing. All the history and details about Abe Lincoln are fascinating. The Norman Rockwell 1945 painting “The Long Shadow of Lincoln” is a gem. It is free but their is a donation box. Worth seeing.
