We were only able to see the office from outside; apparently it is not open for tours. Still interesting to see the location in proximity to the other Lincoln sites.

We were very disappointed that the Law Offices were closed for renovation. We were told that they had been closed for at least 5 years but supposedly opening again next month.

Just across from the Old State Capitol on the pedestrian street. The sign is even smaller now but the statues are still there for some photo ops.

Don’t go out of your way to stop to see words painted on the side of a building. If you are in the area it’s cool to walk by and see it on your way to the old capital.

This law office where Lincoln used to work is just opposite the Old State Capitol. You'll recognize it by a monument in front, his family escorting him out and preparing to address the audience. The office is famous also as a place where Mr. Lincoln...More

As others have said in their reviews, the building is closed for renovation. It is downtown, within walking distance of the museum, the Old State Capitol, Union Station, etc. It is a photo op for any Lincoln fan.

I could look in the windows and see some of the displays. I'm sure it would have been interesting to tour. It was nice to see where Lincoln practiced law, even if I couldn't get in the building. Across the street from the Old State...More

This site is currently being renovated, as of October 2017, but it is still nice to see the building where Abraham Lincoln worked as a lawyer. You can drive by it and see the building and beautiful bronze statue of Lincoln and his family, or...More

Very short walking distance from the Old State Capitol so you don't have to move your car. Small but just as it was in Lincoln's day. Caretaker that was working the day we went was full of knowledge and interesting facts about Lincoln and Herndon....More

I went to the Office in September, and it was undergoing renovation and was closed. It is, however, very historic, so it is worth a look if you are in Springfield.

I think they open at 8 am. You can get on the National Park Service webpage and probably find out more info.
