My husband and stepson had been to the museum a few times especially when he was younger. Now the boys are 19 and in college and we made a quick day trip since I had never been there. It wasn't the typical museum I expected...More

You'll be surprised at how much time you can spend in this museum and how interesting it is. Don't miss the two theaters they are unique and special.

What a fantastic museum! Much better than I expected. Lifelike figures, stay for the movies. Definitely worth the trip. Spent 2 and a half hours there amd covered it all but wish I had more time to read all the information on display.

The Lincoln museum is not huge, but is packed with interesting exhibits and films, and some Harry Potter like 3D effects. Very emotional, educational. Well worth a visit.

By far the best museum I’ve been to. The hologram show was amazing. The staff were very informative and wanted you to ask them questions. Really friendly Americans. All the exhibits were well presented and you are made to feel part of history.

No, that is not an option. It is not a national park.

We were with a 9 year old who likes Lincoln but his attention span lasted about 2-3 hours. If all adults I would have read more and probably done 3-4 hours
