Check out the new display about 4 Presidents with Illinois connections. It will only be through the end of December! Worth going back if you haven't gone in a while.

I have always been a huge fan of Abe Lincoln. This is a beautiful museum full of history. I almost felt like I went back in time. It is fun, entertaining and very educational. They also have a great gift shop.

Best ever place to visit. Bring your kids too. Very real life sized history figures. Not too big either so walking is not a problem.

This is a world class museum. Many wax figures give life to the players - the President and all the people around him. Great walk back in history of our 16th President! Shows his child hood home, family life, life as a lawyer, key points...More

The museum was average however it did give you a lot of information. It is very large and takes about an hour and a half to complete.

I visited here while in town and found it to be informative. I would allow about 1.5 hours to explore.

We got tickets thru the hotel we stayed at for free. I don't know what the cost is or if there is any type of discounted price. The museum would be able to answer your question.

No, that is not an option. It is not a national park.
