Currently closed for renovations, but it was a great spot for a photo with the kids! It is on an easy to reach corner across the street from the Old State Capitol.

Wonderful experience for young boys to see and experience about Honest Abe a man of many facets! His home was very true to the time period!

It is currently undergoing renovations and I'm sure when it's open again it will be an even more worthwhile visit. It gives an interesting glimpse into the 1800s life of Abraham Lincoln in Springfield. The place is a nice short visit, a little dark and...More

Currently you can only view the exterior of the building. It was insightful to see where this office is in relation to the old state capitol and the Lincoln residence. It helps to visualize the community in which the Lincolns lived and loved.

Apparently the house has been closed for quite a while (from the looks of everything). Why would any city do renovations during tourist season? Really hated to miss it.

I think they open at 8 am. You can get on the National Park Service webpage and probably find out more info.
