The museum is phenomenal! It is well laid out. The videos are informative. Only downside is there were alot of school groups on the day we went and they were not well disciplined.

We spent several hours here after first visiting Lincoln's Springfield home. We really appreciated the exhibits, including the multimedia presentations. We came away with a good sense of both his political and family life, and of the tragedies, hard won victories, persistence, faith and character that made our 16th President such a great man. The museum is based on an appreciation for what they lived through and accomplished, as much as that is possible after so much time has passed. It was definitely worth going out of our way to visit.

Six family members ages 11-75 years enjoyed. Two hours seemed enough for museum. Appreciate the senior & student reduced fee. Liked the layout. Liked the combo of walk through displays and movie type shows. There was also middle school field trip happening.

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum (ALPLM) is fabulous. We visit many times throughout the year. There are many special events at both the museum and library which are always interesting. We take our out of town guest there when showing them around Springfield. A+
