We were really excited to go here so whatever we saw we were pleased. Everyone was very welcoming and nice. Getting tickets was easy too and once we got in it was beautiful. They have so much information and interesting facts. The place is well taken care of and they make sure everyone follows the rules to keep it that way. The theater itself is obviously refurbished, but it was still awesome to be in. The man who was speaking to us about the timeline of Lincoln really knew his stuff and was funny as well. All and all we had a great time and we suck enjoyed our time here.
I walked into this museum very confident in my knowledge of Lincoln's presidency and assassination. I was astonished to find out how much I didn't know. This museum is so rich in historical detail. The staff was more than happy to answer any question I asked, and if I asked something obscure, they put the question out over their radios until someone found an answer. The Park Service personnel I encountered were very enthusiastic about sharing information. If you are interested in history, don't miss this museum.
Always love coming to Ford's Theatre! The staff are really pleasant and knowledgeable. Great museum. Great gift shop. Easy walking distance from Arlington Metro Station. Park at Arlington and metro over. Perfect!
The theater where President Lincoln was shot is still a beautiful working performing arts center. Tour this theater/museum for the history lesson or go see a modern theatrical production for a special evening out. Ford's Theatre is one of America's most interesting & inspiring national treasures!
We took part in the tour that starts here and walks throughout explaining the events that occurred immediately after President Lincoln's assassination. Great tour! Then it ends at the White House. They do a great job with that "walking history" tour.
