Visit the law office building (office is closed/renovations) and learn about his law career and some of his famous cases. Enjoy an outide visit to the Old State Capitol (closed/renovations) and learn about his rise into national politics and the fall of slavery that begins here. And you’ll tour through the world class Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum detailing Lincoln’s life from boyhood until his brutal assassination.
