The exhibits chronicle the life and times of Abraham Lincoln, from his early childhood through his years as President. Every display is "kid friendly" - your children will enjoy handling genuine historical artifacts of the period and will get a huge kick out of the Museum's multi-media presentations. Many of the exhibits put the viewer right into the middle of the action; you really feel as if you are on the scene as the events unfold.
