We enjoyed this attraction. Some of the artifacts were amazing to see. We didn't make it to the library, just the museum. We also went to the Lincoln family tomb.

I don’t dis a place lightly, but this “attraction” is neither presidential in nature or nor is it a library, at least not in the sense of other Presidential Libraries that I’ve visited. What it is, is an overpriced, class “A”, all-American, tourist trap that is a combination of a wax museum and a mega-sized gift shop. The foundation that runs the museum seems more concerned about separating you from the Lincoln’s in your wallet than teaching history. The Lincoln funeral room, complete with a coffin and hobby-lobby, plastic floral arrangements was exceptionally cheesy; though I did enjoy the Civil War in 14 minutes electronic exhibit. If you want the real the Lincoln story, save your money and travel a few blocks away to the National Park Service administered Lincoln Home National Historic Site.
