Lincoln's widow insisted the slain president be buried here, defying local leaders who wanted to erect a grand downtown memorial.

Lincoln's Tomb is a moving tribute to our 16th President. After you visit the tomb, walk behind it, down the stairs. There you will find the vault where Lincoln and Willie Lincoln were held until the first tomb was finished. Follow the road up the...More

This was my highlight of Springfield Illinois! The tomb is huge and you see it in the distance! Our kids 17, 15, and 11 loved it. You are right there where President Lincoln is buried 10 feet down. It is nice that it is a...More

My second visit to Lincoln's tomb was worthwhile. There were lots of girl scouts about, so it was not a time for quiet.

Lincoln's Tomb is such a moving experience. The guides there are very good. They do remind you to be respectful of the setting, and the quiet is very nice to take in everything you see. We drove around the cemetery, also, and it is beautiful....More

A great and peaceful cemetery, the person at the tomb was very educated on Lincoln and his family. A great monument for a great man.

A beautiful cemetery - getting to the Lincoln site requires the signs. The other war memorials (Vietnam, etc.) were not so cared for and were rather out of the way.....they deserve better than this.

Beautiful sculptures surround Lincoln's tomb. Everyone's favorite is a large scuplture of his head; his nose is very shiny as everyone rubs it for luck. Very interesting tour inside the tomb, explaining many details about the sculptures, the attempts to steal Lincoln's body and what...More

Went here on our last morning in town, and found it very interesting. Walked a lot, and went up on the tomb to see bronzes. The war memorials were a chance to reflect on some history, and being a vet, it brought back many memories.

This was quite the sight to see. President Lincolns Tomb was a moving experience. There are also many interesting tombstones for those who like to do "rubbings".
