On February 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln was born in a one-room log cabin, similar to the authentic 19th-century cabin preserved here.

Great place to visit. They offer guided tours, and the staff is great to answer questions. There is a short 15-minute film that starts every half hour that details President Lincoln's early life and how his family came to be in Hodgenville. If you have...More

Greatly enjoyed our visit. The Visitor Center is excellent. We did not take time for the 15-minute movie. Access is handicap and stroller accessible. There is some minor construction going on that limits access to the spring and appears to be adding a flagpole circle....More

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. A nice walk leads to the huge marble Washington DC-like...More

This State park is out in the boonies. When you finally arrive you won't find what you pictured in your mind. There is a large neo- Classic granite building that houses a replica log cabin. There are other buildings scattered throughout the park. Nothing anywhere...More

Stopped here and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Arrived late, so did not get to take full advantage of the visitors center, had to rush. Would go again as what brief time we spent, seeing the monument and cabin, slice of the old oak tree, and...More

This was very exciting for me to get to experience. It is easy to find & very accessible. The highlight is walking out to a huge monument & inside is a replica cabin of what his home would have looked like. There's a visitor center,...More

Depends on how much time you have, how interested you are in learning about Lincoln and what the weather is like. One hour is good if you want to just see what's there. If you do the visitor center and film more like 2... More
