Plan your visit to the exclusive exhibit “Lincoln: History to Hollywood,” currently on display, presents key sets, costumes and props from the award-winning Steven Spielberg film, “Lincoln.” Highlighted in the exhibit is Abraham Lincoln’s office, a vignette of Mary Lincoln’s bedroom, and costumes and props used by star, Daniel Day-Lewis. The items are all on loan from Spielberg and DreamWorks Studios.

The exhibit is on display at Historic Union Station, just across the street from the presidential museum. The station serves as an annex to the presidential museum, where visitors can tour the exhibit and see video presentations about the movie.

Children can tour the special exhibit at Union Station for free when accompanied by an adult. The cost for adults is just $5.

Adults also have the option of buying the new “full experience” package allowing them to tour the entire presidential library and museum and the new movie exhibit for $15. That’s just $3 more than the basic museum admission price. You can purchase tickets in advance here.

The exhibit is made possible with the help of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation​​.
