Museum of Funeral Customs (closed)

Springfield, IL


Until 2009, the museum was located just outside the gates of Oak Ridge Cemetery, which contains the tomb of Abraham Lincoln. Although the museum was not large, it contained many well documented displays. After the museum closed the objects in the collection were transferred to the Kibbe Hancock Heritage Museum in Carthage, Illinois.
