To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the death of Abraham Lincoln and his funeral in Springfield, this exhibition will feature rarely seen objects that honor the memory of our 16th president.
The Illinois State Museum Collection of fine and decorative arts contains many objects related to our sixteenth president, most of which are rarely exhibited.
The Illinois State Museum has partnered with the 2015 Lincoln Funeral Coalition to present free educational programs in conjunction with the Remembering Lincoln exhibition.
