Welcome to the website for the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, a division of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, an agency of Illinois state government. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is located in two buildings—the Museum and a Library immediately across the street. Of all of the presidential libraries and museums devoted to American presidents, only the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is managed by a state government agency.
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum brings to life Abraham Lincoln’s story through immersive exhibits and displays of original artifacts. Find out how to make the most of your visit, whether you are traveling alone or with family, friends, or a group. While we hope to whet your appetite for a visit to the Museum, you will find entertaining and educational online resources (see, for instance, the Online Lincoln Collection), an array of learning materials, and ideas on how to plan your visit. Perhaps you wish to host an event at the Museum. The Museum and the adjacent Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library offer beautiful venues settings for one-of-a-kind meetings and social occasions.
There is a lot to see on this website . . . and even more at the Museum! We hope to see you soon.
