    Very good audio tour, well done & informative museum, good presentation by the ranger in the Theatre itself. Worth a visit to learn more about Lincoln, see where he was shot and the room in he died.

    A part of American history. Info & artifacts related to the assassination of Abe Lincoln. This is a place all Americans visiting DC ought to take the time to visit. You might even learn something.

    Museum isn't great. You can see what Abe was wearing when he was shot and also the head his pillow was on. The Peterson house is worth it as is the small show you see in the theatre. Can't see the box

    We had a really cool afternoon here, they have a lot of information and displays on the Lincoln assassination and even the actual gun used by John Wilkes Booth.

    Theater is restored and the seats were comfortable for the presentation on President Lincoln’s assassination. The line out front moves really quickly. I would recommend a visit if in the area.

    If you are coming for an evening performance, other than the French bistro opposite the theatre, try Hard Rock( happy hour 4-7pm) or Harrys( on E st & 11th) for a quick drink & small bites before show

    Audio tour is not worth the extra money. The tour is worth the time & the theater is amazing. You can see directly into the box where Lincoln was shot.

    If you come for the programming outside of the tours and museum, forget One Destiny. Go for the educational talk with park ranger Caleb instead. What a fox!

    The employees will tell you seats in the theater are "first come, first serve," but there are plenty of seats. Stay in the museum as long as you want- there's no need to rush for a seat and wait.

    The museum is free but you need to get a ticket at the box office, which is located inside. The video presentations are great. Make sure to watch all of them! En savoir plus

    Don't fight the line to go downstairs. Go up stairs and opposite of the presidential box for the best seats ever.

    Ford's Theatre has preserved the 1865 scene where President Lincoln was assassinated. Plays are produced on the same stage onto which John Wilkes Booth jumped after the fatal shot.

    On the second floor of the Theater, you can see the boxseat where Abe Lincoln was sitting when he was killed. On the lower level the museum displays exhibits about Lincoln’s life and his tragic death.

    Across from the no-gum-allowed Ford's Theater, there's a gum tree you stick your gum on and take a picture with. If you're into that kind of nostalgic gum-chewing.

    After the assassination the entire building was ultimately gutted due to multiple burnings. The only original element is the brick mortar.
