We could not go inside but got to read the informational plaques and get pictures. It is right across the street from the Old State Capitol. A definite must if you are a Lincoln buff.

The law office has been closed for awhile, but it is still worth going to visit. It is near the old state capitol and Lincoln square.

It is currently undergoing renovations and I'm sure when it's open again it will be an even more worthwhile visit. It gives an interesting glimpse into the 1800s life of Abraham Lincoln in Springfield. The place is a nice short visit, a little dark and...More

I think they open at 8 am. You can get on the National Park Service webpage and probably find out more info.
