Movie props coming to Illinois Lincoln Museum

Posted: Updated:

Props and costumes from the Daniel Day-Lewis movie "Lincoln" are coming to Springfield.

 The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum said Monday that the pieces will debut in early 2014. They will be across the street from the Lincoln library at Union Station. The exhibit is called "Lincoln: From History to Hollywood" and will include Lincoln's office, Mary Lincoln's bedroom and dresses and Lincoln's suit. The library says the items will be on display for "many years to come."

 The items are on loan from director Steve Spielberg and DreamWorks Studios. They previously were on display in a Lincoln exhibit at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
