We had some free time and decided to go and check this out. It wasnt horrible, but wasnt exactly great either. Could be something someone with pre-teen aged kids would enjoy. Younger kids would probably lose interest quick.

You can get through the museum in an hour. It is located on campus of Lincoln Memorial University. It was a quick rest stop break for us where we learned a few new things.

You can see everything in an hour. Right now the entry fee is waived because they are working on exhibits. We enjoyed this brief detour off of interstate 75.

This small museum hosted at LMU has some interesting campaign items for AL. It is undergoing some needed updates at time of review. Needs some improved item signage for featured items to help tie together the exhibits. $5 for adults.

It's a good place to just walk around in a quiet day and look up interesting facts about old Honest Abe.
