A vital institution and must-visit site. The museum helps humanize an American legend, captures the complexity of the moment in which Lincoln rose to guide the country through its darkest moments, and illustrates how President Lincoln was both a moral leader and savvy politician. The curators have arranged the exhibits in a very thoughtful manner. Lots of information to digest and food for thought from the visit.
