  • There's buttons to push, movies to watch, and touch-able exhibits (not all exhibits are touch-able). Staff is friendly.  more »
  • Nice beginning for the Lincoln home tour. Nice movie and the book store is nice too! Friendly staff.  more »
  • What a neat piece of history to step into! Our kids enjoyed the tour of Lincoln's home and hearing the stories from our Park Ranger (Larry) of what the Lincoln children would have been doing in the house. It really kept their attention and kept them engaged in what could have been a "boring" tour to the younger ones. You can learn a lot about people by stepping into their homes and I'd never guess this man would become President. Pretty amazing!
  • One of my favorite Presidential homes that I’ve visited ! The area it’s in is very scenic and takes you back to older times. The Rangers were excellent and made the experience even greater. It’s wonderful when you get to see the home if someone so important in history. Well worth a road trip to Springfield to see!
