You can't visit Springfield without exploring at least one of the many Lincoln Sites.
Here are just five that should be on your list.
1. Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum
More than 40,000 square feet of galleries, theaters, and historic displays that combine scholarship with showmanship - culminating in the world’s best collection of Lincoln lore and legend.
2. Lincoln's New Salem
Go back nearly two centuries in time as you walk the streets of reconstructed New Salem, the village where Abraham Lincoln lived as a young man. See where he split rails, clerked in a store and served as postmaster, among other positions that influenced him to eventually become the Great Emancipator.
3. Lincoln Home
The Lincoln Home has been completely restored to its 1860 appearance and reveals much about Lincoln as a husband, father, neighbor and politician. Tours of this national treasure are conducted by National Park Service Rangers.
4. Old State Capitol
Within these walls a great man rose to prominence to become the 16th President of the United States. It was here Lincoln spoke the immortal words “A house divided against itself cannot stand…” as the threat of a Civil War loomed.
5. Lincoln Tomb
Within this breathtaking monument lie the remains of Abraham Lincoln, his wife Mary, and three of their four sons. At the entrance of the Tomb is a bronze bust of Mr. Lincoln where visitors from around the world have stopped to rub the nose for good luck.
