The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum documents the life of the 16th U.S. President, Abraham Lincoln and the American Civil War. The museum contains life-size dioramas of locations in Lincoln's life.
The museum contains life-size dioramas of Lincoln's boyhood home, areas of the White House, the presidential box at Ford's Theatre, and the settings of key events in Lincoln's life, as well as pictures, artifacts and other memorabilia.

The presidential library opened on October 14, 2004, and the museum opened on April 19, 2005. The buildings which now house the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum are in three separate structures, including the former Springfield Union Station, which has been adapted to serve as the museum's visitor center.

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum is not affiliated with the U.S. National Archives and its system of Presidential Libraries.
