  • This small museum is about 20 minutes off of Interstate 65, and makes a nice break for those traveling. There is a very small museum, which also has an interesting 15-minute film about Lincoln's youth...  more »
  • This National Park is small, but it is a memorial to the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln with a replica of the cabin he was born in. Went through the visitors center first, though, and the short film th...  more »
  • We visited the park on a Wednesday afternoon and participated in the "self-guided" tour and 15-minute film.  more »
  • Currently undergoing some renovations (as of 5/19/17). The park itself is nestled just a bit off the interstate. It was really neat to see the history of the area. This appears to be a good stop for the junior rangers especially (I don't have kids, but there were a whole bunch of junior rangers there when we stopped and they appeared to be enjoying themselves). The walking isn't too bad in the park, but if you have limited mobility seeing the monument and cabin may present a slight challenge. Definitely worth checking out, impressive reminder of how recent (in the grand scheme) things like Abraham Lincoln's presidency and the end of slavery really are.
  • Wonderful memorial, with a small museum and gift shop. It was under construction while we were there, but otherwise very nice. Even the temporary portapotties were extremely clean. Don't forget to visit the springs, especially if it's a hot day--it feels so refreshing!
  • Fantastic stop on our road trip! I learned so much and my kids enjoyed getting badges when they completed the activity book! Thanks for having an awesome place for us to learn about Abe Lincoln.
  • It is worth a stop if passing through Louisville area. I find the Lincoln Boyhood Memorial in Indiana to be more educational and enjoyable, but this park is also very nice. Decent walking paths. As of March 2017, there was construction of the Visitor's Center, but still accessible.
  • A bit out of the way, but a nice historical park to visit. Staff are nice. Park is well kept.
