Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library

Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and MuseumSpringfield, Illinois (President 1861-1865)"Combining impeccable scholarship with brilliant showmanship, the new museum's permanent exhibit galleries carry visitors on twin journeys from a crude, overcrowded Indiana cabin to Ford's Theater and a reproduction of the House Chamber in the Old State Capitol where Lincoln's flag-draped casket lies in state. Along the way, you will be treated to a 250 seat multi-stage and screen presentation ("Lincoln's Eyes"), a stunning holographic theater ("Ghosts of the Library") bringing Lincoln documents and artifacts, literally, to life; a Treasures Gallery housing icons like the Gettysburg Address; and a separate children's area called "Mrs. Lincoln's Attic."We invite you to browse this website and encourage you to join us this spring when the Museum opens its doors to share what has been called "The Great American Story" with the nation and the world."
