There is so much to say about Abraham Lincoln, and this National Park Service unit does an excellent job of staying in its lane and focusing exclusively on the teenage and early adult years that Lincoln lived in southern Indiana. The film does a great...More

This is a national memorial a little light in the presentation -- until you get home and think about it. A beautiful, depression-era building housing a smallish museum and the information desk and a couple of meeting areas. However small the museum, it's very well...More

We dropped in and wondered around the park for about 45 minutes. It’s free. It’s a quick break from a long car ride. We enjoyed our time just walking around!

I love our National Park System, and this Park is no exception. At the visitor center I found a very knowledgeable and forthcoming park ranger. He was a delight. He chatted me up for 30 minutes, answered all my questions, discussed Lincoln lore beyond his...More

I only had a time to stop and see the site where his cabin once stood. But being able to see that was very cool. Just knowing that this is where Lincoln grew up, to eventually become such a hero, was surreal. This makes the...More
