This well-known and in fact infamous site is an interesting place to see in Washington D.C. It is a wonderful theatre and of you happen to be going for a play it is certainly a treat to see. The hall is ornately decorated and pristine and the old-worldly charm of the place has been well preserved.
However, it isn’t the concerts and events but the history that makes this place so well known. It is the historic site where the US President Abraham Lincoln was shot at. A detailed exhibit of the life and times of Lincoln has been set up here to commemorate him in this place. The Lincoln book tower which is a collection of books about Lincoln arranged on a spiral also finds a place in this theatre. History lovers will certainly have a field day in this famous place.

The recently updated museum is amazing. Well displayed and extremely informative. There was a great balance between different media for conveying the information. Be aware that the theater may not always be open for viewing, but if that's the case you should still stay and see the museum (which is the most interesting part!). Also be sure to go to the house across the way, which also has some amazing displays. One of my favorite stops in DC!
This was a great tour and museum 10 years ago when I came. Don't waste your time going now. Theater was closed. They heard you down in the basement with no tour guide. Old displays they used to have were gone. I wouldn't come back
Well designed and l placed exhibits with extensive information about the planning and execution of Lincoln's assassination. Lots of back history on the conspirators and Lincoln's movements at the time. Still am operating theater.
Had a great experience. Was even allowed in the actual box where Lincoln was shot. Lots of history and information. Also its free so really no one should have anything to complain about!!
Really well done play by the park ranger about the soldier that shot John Wilkes Booth. When he started out I thought it was going to be a bit hokey, but by the end he had my attention and presented the history extremely well.
