The Feel of the Lincoln Home

At the end of May 2015, RES installed a new hands-on exhibit at the Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Springfield, Illinois. Originally intended for the visually impaired, “The Feel of the Lincoln Home”, installed in the site’s Visitor Center, allows all visitors to touch objects like they will see, but not be able to touch, in the Lincoln Home. It includes Braille Labels for the blind, but its hands-on activities appeal to all audiences. It won a National Park Service award for accessibility.
