Went to visit with family and it was amazing. All the history and details about Abe Lincoln are fascinating. The Norman Rockwell 1945 painting “The Long Shadow of Lincoln” is a gem. It is free but their is a donation box. Worth seeing.

An amazing collection of civil war and Lincoln books, memorabilia and displays of civil war history and events. Very well presented with room to spare to navigate around the displays. Well worth 30 minutes of your time or more, depending upon your curiosity.
