I really enjoyed this museum. All the staff was really friendly and the exhibits were great. There was lots of historical info. My favorite was the political cartoon section. We often hear how everyone loved Lincoln, not that there were people unhappy about his views. The mock White House was really awesome! The cost is $15 which I feel is fair. Yes you can take photographs without flash.

I have visited every Presidential library/museum and was truly pleasantly surprised by my visit to my favorite President's library. Lincoln truly is a King and the new library is befitting his status. They have two movies that are fantastic, including one that is a hologram and has amazing tech. The library portion was closed today (9/5/20) but the museum was and is spectacular. The museum doesn't house many artifacts but is awesome. It is super close to the Lincoln home (walking distance) and if you are anywhere near Springfield you should go. Five stars!

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Very well curated. Make sure that you see both shows in addition to walking through all exhibits! Kids (ages 16 & 12) seemed to enjoy as well.

You know it's a good museum when a 16 year old really enjoys the place. There is a ton of information as you would expect. Do not miss either movie, they are really well done. I really liked the side of the younger Lincoln with the cabin as I visited both the Lincoln Birthplace and Lincoln Boyhood Home locations last fall. My daughter liked the White House side. There is also an area with artifacts or a gallery as they call it. We did all of it in about 2 1/2 hours, which included the gift shop, which is really good. When we went, we had to make reservations in advance because of the social distancing issues and we did have to get our temps checked and answer some questions. The usual for 2020, but we should all be used to that by now. Great visit.
