This was a great place and reasonably priced. If you are expecting high end and fancy, then you will be disappointed. This is down to earth and the most important point is the history. You walk away with a good understanding of Lincoln. It was...More

Hadn't planned on visiting, but the rain drove us to find some indoor activity. We were happy we did. Many model trains, some dating back to the 1800s. Animated lectures on Lincoln's life, and his funeral journey back to Illinois. Knowledgeable, helpful staff. We highly...More

There are several model train scenes set up here. There is also memoribilia from the past, not just Lincoln's time. You also take a simulated train ride that is informative, but kids might like it more than adults.

The front part of the museum is a gift shop that is ok but not special. We decided to pay the extra money and go into the museum. They offer small videos along the way done in a "first person" perspective of President Lincoln. The...More

We got in free for staying at Artillery Ridge Camping Resort, and we were glad it was free for us. They do have a lot of model trains, but the only thing related to President Lincoln is a funeral train presentation. Not sure why the...More
