This is a neat visit although the tour can run long. It is open daily 9-5 and is free!

“This was probably my least favorite site to visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

I guess I didn't care for this so much as it wasn't as realistic to me as the other places in Springfield. It was interesting and the staff is extremely knowledgable. If I were to go back to visit, I might skip this one if I was running short of time.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

As it is just downtown, it is nice to see where Lincoln worked and intended to come back to work after his term was up. Unfortunately that as not to be. Walk where Lincoln once walked as there are some original floorboards.

The Lincoln law office is located pretty close to the Presidential Library and Museum. Make sure to stop and take a look.

“Great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

The lady who gave us the tour was very knowledgeable and you could tell she really loved her job. The site is run by two volunteers, they rotate taking the groups. If you are interested in LIncoln, you must stop here.
