After a rigorous two-year review process, the American Alliance of Museums has accredited the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, highlighting their remarkable qualifications.

The ALPLM, which received this recognition on their first application, is now among 3% of museums in the U.S. that hold this accreditation. This categorizes the ALPLM as one of the most notable museums across the country and establishes its national importance. The American Alliance of Museums noted ALPLM’s level of operation, commitment to education and the preservation of former President Abraham Lincoln’s story.

Through their exhibits, educational programs, library services and more, the ALPLM has become a pillar of Illinois and U.S. history and has tirelessly worked to become one of the top operating museums since its opening in 2005.
