Museum Visitors Vote With Feet for Reagan Over Lincoln



(p. 9A) For the first time since it opened, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Mu­seum in Springfield, Ill., is no longer the nation's most visited presidential museum. It's been overtaken by Ronald Reagan's museum in Simi Valley, Calif.

Lincoln's museum had been tops since it opened in 2005, rid­ing the appeal of its Disney-like re-creations of the president's life. But last year it counted 293,135 visitors -- short of Rea­gan's 367,506.
