one of the best Presidential Museums I have been in. Exhibits are great, two of the best "movies" you will ever see, and the time line of the Civil War will bring chill down your spine.

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
