It's shaped like a horseshoe and has a wonderful collection of Lincoln's boyhood home, many pictures and lots to read. We used our park pass so no fee to get in. Well worth the trip. They also have his mothers grave and other walking trails.

As usual, the National Park Service has done a good job. We love to visit our national parks and monuments. A short hop off I-64, makes this an easy place to visit while passing through Southern Indiana. The 15 minute video at the visitor's center...More
