|We left St. Charles this morning and headed to Springfield, IL. The Abraham Lincoln presidential museum and library is located here. We arrived around noon and it was pouring down rain! Great day for a museum. Especially this one! This was the most interactive and technology-oriented museum I have ever been to. We all loved it. It was great for the kids and held their interest the whole time. Apparently Disney was involved in part of the designing of this museum. We all learned a great deal and really, really enjoyed ourselves. Found some treasures at the gift shop, too.. Most of the pictures posted were from an kid's play area where they could explore costumes, and toys of the time of Lincoln. Highly recommended site!
