Lincoln museum features film props

An exhibit of sets, costumes and props from Steven Spielberg's award-winning movie "Lincoln" has opened at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield.

It will be on permanent display.

Children can explore the exhibit free of charge when accompanied by an adult.

The exhibit "Lincoln: History to Hollywood" includes the set for Lincoln's office, part of Mary Todd Lincoln's bedroom set, costumes worn by the actors and a variety of props used in the 2012 movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis as the president and Sally Field as his wife.

It's on display at Union Station, just across the street from the presidential museum.

The station will serve as an annex to the presidential museum where visitors can tour the exhibit and see video presentations about the movie.
