"Lincoln" movie props headed to Springfield


Springfield - The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will welcome props from the movie "Lincoln."


The new exhibit "Lincoln: From History to Hollywood," will open in early 2014. The exhibit will feature Lincoln's office where much of the movie takes place.


The sets and costumes are on loan from Spielberg and DreamWorks Studios.


Children can tour the special exhibit at Union Station for free when accompanied by an adult. The cost for adults is just $5.


Adults also have the option of buying the new "full experience" package allowing them to tour the entire presidential library and museum and the new movie exhibit for $15.  That's just $3 more than the basic museum admission price, which is not changing.


No tax dollars are being used to pay for moving the exhibit from California to Springfield. The expense is being covered by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation.
