My son and I love Abraham Lincoln and history. This place was filled with replicas and lots of historic information from his birth to his death. Very nice for a day trip.

The original courthouse of The mother and Father of Abraham Lincoln marriage license and the years of Abraham Lincoln told with audio and board form. Good as you will see in most federal museums. Great story. Part of the Lincoln trail.

After all the raving reviews of the museum, we were excited to see it. We went on a Saturday morning and waited until 11:20 for it to open. We did get a "free" view of it through the window and I am sure we would have enjoyed it. We called the phone number given and never received a return call.... More
