Museum of Funeral Customs
1440 Monument Ave.
Springfield, IL 62702

But first, a stop at the Museum of Funeral Customs right outside the gates of the cemetery where Abraham Lincoln is entombed. Exhibits on the history of embalming! Cases of mourning jewelry and clothes! The difference between caskets and coffins! Even a display about the Lincoln funeral train and a life size reproduction of his casket! For death buffs like Mary, there never was a better museum. It's a wonder she stopped herself from buying every book on display. But we wish we had eaten those coffin-shaped chocolates (complete with detachable lid and body inside) before they melted in the hot car.
