Officials at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum say attendance was up more than 7 percent in 2013, thanks in part to the popularity of Steven Spielberg's film "Lincoln." Nearly 314,000 people visited the museum through November. That's about 10,000 more visitors than in all of 2012. Attendance is on pace to be the highest since 2010. In 2009, the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth, more than 600,000 people visited the Springfield museum. Through the first 11 months of the year, attendance figures show a 7.7 percent increase.
