Oue teens enjoyed this. There was a cell phone guided tour which was right on the money for tech savvy teens. The tour was interesting and short enough to keep everyone's interest. The park is very well kept and the paint colors were inspiring. The kids enjoyed seeing the period costume on 2 park volunteers.
The park rangers and volunteers were friendly and helpful. The gift shop had interesting items. I also felt that the tour covered many interesting topics - Underground Railroad activity in the area, Mary's friendly neighbors, etc.
I visited this site with a friend who is a quadriplegic. We planned on strolling down the street and looking at the outside of the buildings. We did not dream that they had an elevator/lift disguised as a plank walkway that provided us with wheelchair access to Lincoln's home. We were able to go all over the first floor. It was a great treat for my friend.
This was totally a great place to stop and see. IT was very detailed and just made you think that you were actually in a place were abe lincoln once lived. It was also errie at some times too, kinda spooky. The tour guides were very helpful in answering any questions you had about the house. It was a great experience to see.
Our family visited Springfield especially to see the Lincoln Home. We enjoyed it very much. If you are a Lincoln buff--don't miss it. It's best to go early in the morning. You need to get tickets, which are free, at the visitor center to tour the home. Our favorite thing was seeing Lincoln's shaving mirror.
