I am back from vacation.

During the trip my wife and I especially enjoyed the new exhibit surrounding and including the captured WWII German submarine at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It was very well done, and worth the extra charge for that part of the museum. The exhibit did an excellent job of making the drama and significance of the capture come alive.

We were also very impressed with the new Lincoln Library Museum in Springfield Illinois. The multimedia presentations and dioramas were spectacular. I was also happy that the museum was fair in its presentation of Lincoln and did not fall into the historical revisionist schools of thought about Lincoln or the civil war while being honest about some of the real controversies surrounding Lincoln.
