I recommend this for anyone visiting Washington. The park service has done such a good job and preserving this piece of history. Go on line and pay the three dollars to make sure you can get in. Make sure to get the ticket with museum,...More

Came by just to see the outside. Found out tickets were free and you could tour the exhibits below, then see the theater with a presentation by a ranger and then a tour of the house across the street where Lincoln died. Amazing history, great...More

Great history and story telling of the tragic event that took place here. Worthwhile to go across the street and see where they took Lincoln afterwards. I've gone to Ford Theater in the past and recall that you could actually walk into the box where...More

learned a lot about Lincoln just by being there, to see the theatre where he was actually shot in, the Booth escape route, the bed Lincoln was put in across the street, all such interesting stuff that you historians cannot miss

Great tour. It was interesting and the museum is very well done too. Well worth the 3 dollars per person that we paid.

Perhaps I would have enjoyed this more we’re it not for the large gaggle of teenagers and younger children running around. Also, I thought it was a guided tour for some reason, but it wasn’t. They met you into the basement for 25 minutes where...More

We've seen it in movies and pictures but you can be there, walk over to where President Lincoln was sitting, and see where he was sitting. It's too bad the actual blood stained chair was replaced, it's over at a museum in Dearborn Michigan. You...More

You should be out by 10; we ate first and it’s worth having time to look at the history display down stairs before the show.

hi! As far as I know, you need to book your visit in advance, or take your chance at the box office. There is no tour guide, but you can rent the audio guide. You can't go in any time you want because the place is not big... More
