“Absolutely a MUST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

The Museum is worth five hours. It is a place where history comes alive. Healthy Subway for munchies. But the museum is a work of art......designed to engage both aged and youth. A sure winner.

“Worth Your Time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

This museum will appeal to all ages. Modern technology is used creatively and it has a Disney flavor packed full of history. It is a great way to learn about the past in Illinois and Lincoln!

“Wonderful experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We took our seven year old granddaughter and she loved it too. All the docents were helpful, informative and friendly. The exhibits were well designed with lots of signage and information. We only wish we had more time to spend and we will plan another trip on our next trip to Illinois.

“Great History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

I really liked Springfield, Illinois. We visited during St. Patrick's Day and it was pretty lively all throughout downtown. I would go back again. The Lincoln Library is truly a great place to visit. You will learn of the tribulations that occurred during that horrible time of the civil war. It is worth the destination and I certainly admire the tasteful way this was put together. Just imagine for a moment that you are in the White House and a war is at your doorstep. Just imagine the Washington Monument is only half built. This is a great tribute to one of our greatest presidents ever.
