About Ford's Theatre, Washington D. C.

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.

  • Love this Theatre and Park! A fantastic reconstruction of the Original Ford's Theatre (the original was purchased by the government, used for office space, and it was eventually "demolished" and rebuilt to the exact specifications of pictures taken the night Lincoln was shot there), Ford's Theatre boasts an impressive museum describing the mood of the country around the time Lincoln was killed, going into fantastic detail about the conspirators and the eventual assassination of Lincoln. I thoroughly enjoyed that museum. After walking through the museum, you'll walk up a couple flights of stairs to be on the top balcony, overlooking the stage and booth where Lincoln was shot. When you're there, I high recommend asking a Ranger for a talk about that night, it's truly intriguing. Overall, I loved this place and consider it a must-visit if you're in DC!

  • DON'T GO TO THE 4:30 TOUR!! There is no tour. You go and in the theater and the guide (if that's what you want to call him) will answer your questions. Our guide was not in the best mood or the nicest person you've ever met. If you can't be at the theater before 4, just wait. The theater is beautiful and its really cool to be there and to see the exact place, but it would have been much better to get a tour and to have a guide speaking.

  • Loved the ranger's telling of Lincoln's assassination. Fascinating piece of history. He gave us so much information and it was short enough for the kid's to enjoy as well. We only got to experience this part, as everything else associated with the theater was closed. Huge bummer that we didn't get to walk across the street and see where Lincoln was at when he died.

  • Visited with a small, homeschool group. Great learning experience but need more time to tour basement. Not very accommodating to the needs of a teacher trying to 'teach' her students. There is so much history and I desperately wish I could have explored more! The speaker in the theater at the end was phenomenal!! During his talk, not one child ages 5 to 15 in our group became restless....very talented and engaging.

  • This place offered an excellent glimpse into the life of one of America's undisputed greatest presidents. I saw two of the museum's 4 main areas: the exhibit on Lincoln's life, which is in the theater basement, and the theater itself (which incidentally is still used for performances). So much care and attention to detail has gone in to designing this museum, right down to the various artifacts from Lincoln's life and presidency. The preservation of Lincoln's seat in the theater itself was especially moving. Most of all, I was very impressed with the staff, who clearly have a passion for sharing Lincoln's story. They were so knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. Plus, for the low low price of $0.00,you can't really go wrong!
