This was a nice place to visit and snap a photo of where Abraham Lincoln worked after seeing it in detail at his museum. You could only view the outside as renovations were being done.

It was helpful to see the display in the Library, since you can't really see anything here. The downtown area is well done showing where Lincoln lived and worked.

We were only able to see the office from outside; apparently it is not open for tours. Still interesting to see the location in proximity to the other Lincoln sites.

We were very disappointed that the Law Offices were closed for renovation. We were told that they had been closed for at least 5 years but supposedly opening again next month.

Just across from the Old State Capitol on the pedestrian street. The sign is even smaller now but the statues are still there for some photo ops.

I think they open at 8 am. You can get on the National Park Service webpage and probably find out more info.
