Looking for a great field trip opportunity for your students that is both educational and fun?  LHM is it!

Lincoln Heritage Museum transforms into a giant classroom, as museum staff share the life, legacy, and character of Abraham Lincoln. Field trips to Lincoln Heritage Museum consist of a guided tour, educational scavenger hunt and fun 19th century games. Students interact with history while searching for scavenger hunt answers within Lincoln Heritage Museum’s first floor gallery. 19th century games like hoop-and-stick and bean-bag-double-can keep students excited and engaged.  


During a guided tour, students walk through 19th century room recreations while learning about the life events that shaped Abraham Lincoln into the man admired today. Each room represents a unique and important moment of Abraham Lincoln's life. Students are encouraged to reach out and touch the objects within the Immersion Tour.
