The heart of Sangamon Experience is a 5,300-square-foot exhibition and interpretive space located in the Public Affairs Center, between the bookstore and the new Center for Lincoln Studies. Designed by FWAI Architects, Inc. of Springfield, the space opened on January 30, 2020. Still under development, features will include multimedia and interactive exhibits, historical maps and photographs, a small theater, and interpretive text developed by teams of UIS students, faculty, and area community partners. The exhibit space is open during PAC building hours. Contact us for directions or with inquiries about tours.
