I really enjoyed this museum. The exhibits were fairly repetitious but it’s still quite a quick stop. I believe it took us both under an hour and I read and watched everything. Bring your AAA card for a discount.

Yes, do stop in this museum. It is smaller but it is one of those experiences that add to your knowledge of a major piece of history. Putting one's self in Lincoln's place (literally) the night before the address, somehow adds to the Gettysburg Address.

If you really want to read, see, and listen to everything the museum has to offer, I would say 11/2 to 2 hours.
