Our guests in wheelchairs and parents with children in strollers will find it very easy to enjoy the museum. All exhibits are located on the ground floor. In addition, there is an elevator so that our events held on the 2nd floor are accessible to all.
The Museum is conveniently located on the downtown square in Springfield, IL, just north of the Old State Capitol. It is a short walk from the Abraham Lincoln Museum and Library. There are many fine and casual restaurants within walking distance.
