Looking Back at Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum
Springfield, Illinois, USA

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is the most-visited state-run presidential museum in the United States.

The design attracts visitors who might otherwise overlook the historic treasures describing the story of the 16th president of the United States. The museum offers visitors an immersive experience that incorporates state-of-the-art entertainment and storytelling technology.

The library and museum are housed in separate buildings, each occupying a full city block. Connected by a fully-enclosed overhead pedestrian walkway, the entrances to both buildings are located in a rotunda-type element reminiscent of the dome of the nearby Old State Capitol, where Lincoln served as a state legislator. Together, the buildings create a unique complex where people can engage emotionally and intellectually in the life of this historic figure.

As a research library, this facility differs from most presidential libraries in that its scope covers not only Abraham Lincoln, but all of Illinois’ history.
