Springfield is the capital of Illinois, but its real significance is as the hometown of Abraham Lincoln.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Dickson Mounds Museum and Lincoln Home National Historic Site. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and International Wall Dog Mural and Sign Art Museum. Explore Springfield's surroundings by going to Lincoln Heritage Museum (in Lincoln), Carthage (Kibbe Hancock Heritage Museum & Carthage Jail) and Children's Museum of Illinois (in Decatur). The adventure continues: get your bearings at Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, see the interesting displays at IL Route 66 Association Hall of Fame & Museum, and contemplate the long history of Dana-Thomas House.
