Currently closed for renovations, but it was a great spot for a photo with the kids! It is on an easy to reach corner across the street from the Old State Capitol.

Wonderful experience for young boys to see and experience about Honest Abe a man of many facets! His home was very true to the time period!

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 have walked this site on previous visits. I am happy that renovations are being done and hope to see the results on my next visit in October. This is also the start of the ghost tour which goes on at 7:00pm.

Currently you can only view the exterior of the building. It was insightful to see where this office is in relation to the old state capitol and the Lincoln residence. It helps to visualize the community in which the Lincolns lived and loved.

Apparently the house has been closed for quite a while (from the looks of everything). Why would any city do renovations during tourist season? Really hated to miss it.

When I visited last year we didn't need to buy tickets and there was not a cost however, there was a donation box on the first floor. I don't remember the operation hours but I think that they probably are the same hours as... More
