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.
This is a must see!
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.
Well thought out explanation of Lincoln's Presidency and worth your time!
