About Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum is a world-class library and museum in downtown Springfield, Illinois, that offers an array of visually beautiful venues perfect for any event. Whether it's a small meeting or a large reception, our staff strives to make sure you are provided with the utmost customer service. Imagine your event -- business meeting, conference, educational seminar, dinner, award banquet, wedding reception, and more -- and we can help you make your event or meeting memorable at the Museum or Library. CATERING: We have a designated caterer that will work with you to provide all food and beverages for your event. It is not possible to bring in your own food or beverages. There is an option to work with a caterer of your choice. However, there is a 50% surcharge on the rental charges total for this option, and the caterer would need to sign an agreement with us an provide appropriate licenses and insurance. We would like to work with you on your upcoming event. Please contact us and let us describe our daytime or evening event venues and the event enhancements that may be added to elevate your event experience. Thank you for your consideration!

Recommendations

Awesome Wedding Venue - An Eventective User from Springfield

We had our wedding in the Freeport room, which is a smaller room on the second floor. With only 80 guests, it was the perfect fit. The staff was very kind and very helpful. We were treated wonderfully. The decor was beautiful and tasteful. We had a great time and I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone looking for a venue spot!
