At the Abraham Lincoln Library & Museum, you'll find everything from every known portrait of the 16th President to an interactive area where your children can step back in time, and even the model sculptors used to create the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.

Behind the scenes, the museum has built an impressive archive of rare documents and artifacts, including a lock of Lincoln's hair that was taken during his autopsy.

The museum also features a revolving exhibit area that is currently showcasing the impact Abraham Lincoln has had in Hollywood. Coming in February of 2013, this area of the museum will explore the medical practices of the Civil War era.
