My family loves going here. The kids love doing the scavenger hunt, it makes looking at the items more interesting. The train ride is a nice way to understand Lincoln's ride home. The kids love looking at all the trains and displays.

This place combines history & trains all in one. The museum leads you through Lincoln's political career to his death. The 1st train layout represents the train that carried Lincoln's body & his son's body from Washington to Springfield. The simulation train is Lincoln talking...More

We were here with my husband's parents and went through the whole train museum, it was a pretty cool experience and glad we did it. Make sure you stop in and check it all out.
