We stopped here after visiting the Lincoln State Park across the street. We went to the museum first and saw all the Lincoln and Lincoln family items. We watched a short 15-20 minute video about his life in a small theater they have there, which...More

Quickly stopped here right before closing time. Lots of history! Abraham Lincoln's father's farm site with the monument of the actual foundation of their cabin, Abraham Lincoln's mother's grave, and the reenactors demonstrating what life would have been during the time Abraham Lincoln would have...More

This was my families first time visiting Lincoln's boyhood home, we were impressed. The museum was built in 1941 by the Civilian Conservation Corp, which is impressive. Plan on wearing comfortable walking shoes.

There is so much to say about Abraham Lincoln, and this National Park Service unit does an excellent job of staying in its lane and focusing exclusively on the teenage and early adult years that Lincoln lived in southern Indiana. The film does a great...More

This is a national memorial a little light in the presentation -- until you get home and think about it. A beautiful, depression-era building housing a smallish museum and the information desk and a couple of meeting areas. However small the museum, it's very well...More
