I rated this 4 because the grounds are lovely. Lots of room outside for kids to romp. I loved they marked tree species. The specimen cabin is unusual. Recommend with the other Lincoln sites. Take a picnic and make this the lunch stop. Very accessible...More
Having visited Springfield Ill and Washington D.C. it was wonderful to see where this great President was born and raised. It is a national park service site and in perfect condition, The movie and memorial building are quite special.
Although a little off the beaten track this NHS is well worth a visit, lovely grounds for a stroll for one thing but the exhibits, movie and gift shop in the visitor centre are excellent. The main attraction is the memorial on the hill housing...More
We were on our way home back to Illinois we passed a sign saying Lincoln's birth place. Being from Illinois we just had to stop. Plus we needed a walk. Park rangers were very nice and gave us lots of information. Grounds are well kept....More
Beyond the magnitude and the grandeur of the monument, one of the things we thought was most memorable was the natural spring on the property. You walk down a few steps to it. And, as you do, the temperature seems to drop about 20 degrees....More
The whole family visited the Lincoln Birthplace Park but I will say that my wife and I were more interested then my two teenaged kids. The park has several trails that you can walk but we just stayed in the visitor center and the few...More
We live about 35 miles south of the Abraham Lincoln's Birthplace National Historical Park and thought we'd give it a shot on our Daughters birthday. We started at the visitors center with a short film and a tour of the small museum at the location....More

Depends on how much time you have, how interested you are in learning about Lincoln and what the weather is like. One hour is good if you want to just see what's there. If you do the visitor center and film more like 2 hours. If you want to walk the grounds that's probably another hour because there are pathways through some woods and grasslands. Have fun!
