‪If you have any appreciation for President Lincoln and the history of the Civil War do not miss this massive hunk of US history. The tour features a guided walk through Lincoln’s life (an audio guide for $5) followed by a walk through the theater. The tour is not rushed. I must admit that I found the tour of Lincoln’s life a bit underwhelming. If you want an amazing museum experience do not miss Churchill's war rooms in London. The overview of Churchil's life is one of the best museum experiences I’ve ever had. This did not hold a candle to the War Rooms. The tour areas is at times crowded and dark. But those nits aside this is still a must-see experience. If you have only a day or two in DC you can miss this. But don't miss it on deeper explorations of Washington.‬

‪I'm giving 5 stars b/c it was my husband's favorite site on our recent trip, though not his first time in DC and he's very interested in Lincoln. I got the narrated tour for all of us which was a good call going with 12 yr olds who could not have read all the information. That being said, I would have dropped to 4 stars b/c it said the tour was 30 min which I suppose is the length of the recorded info but does not including reading any of the material in the museum, checking out the theater for any amount of time, going across the street (which we didnt do b/c it was closed that day), etc. My husband could have probably spent 2 hrs in there which we couldn't do because we had another timed entry set up across town based on the '30 minute' claim. I think we spent almost an hour and could have been there a bit longer to get more of the information. Also it isn't very big and was very packed so you had to shuffle along past each exhibit area.
One kind of disappointing thing I wasn't aware of was that it is not the original theater, it was gutted years ago to be offices or something and then rebuilt as a replica. It's super interesting regardless and worth it if interested in Lincoln.‬

‪My family and I attended "A Christmas Carol" nearly every year, with the exception of 2020, and this year's performance (December 23, 2021) was beyond awful.

There were many issues related to the performance. In previous years, the performance would go into great depth detailing the story. They tried to condense the entire play into one sitting, forcing every scene. They raised the prices for tickets for a shorter play and didn't even collect donations for the local food banks they usually supported.

They cut short on the songs which were directly used in Charles Dickens's story. This was a bare-bones skeleton of "A Christmas Carol".

There were very few props/stage effects included, with the fairy of Christmas Past walking downstairs, Scrooge's "bed" was in a victorian chair, and the only stage decoration was a vinyl green chair.

They had people take their COVID tests outside, but they didn't actually check the results from the test, just waiving them in without checking.

Don't even get me started on how understaffed the cast was. They went from over 30 devoted to <10 actors. Every child in the play was 'substituted' by a high-pitched adult. The most blatant example is how Tiny Tim, a very important character to Scrooge's story, is a tall gentleman with a beard larger than the actor who played his father.

Suffice to say, my family and I didn't enjoy the play, and we won't be attending another performance at Ford's Theater anytime soon.‬

‪My husband and I were lucky enough to be in DC for a quick getaway and bought tickets to “A Christmas Carol”. Wonderful performance in a historic setting. Highly recommend seeing a production at the theatre which entitles you to the musuem an hour before the performance. ‬

‪The Ford Theater is not just a site of historical significance, but provides a museum where one can learn about Lincoln and all aspects of his assassination. There are many artifacts from the time on display also. I found the information on the co-conspirators to be very interesting.

We found it easy to park in a garage just around the corner from the theater although the hop on/hop off buses have a stop across the street from it.

After going through the museum on a self-guided tour, you then walk up steps to where you view the theater and balcony where Lincoln was shot.

I'm not sure that the theater is handicap accessible, but I may have missed an elevator. The tour took us about ½ hour. Unfortunately the Peterson House (where Lincoln was taken after being shot) was not open to go in while we were there. They have the Junior Ranger program here also if you have your children with you.

If you want to learn about the Lincoln assassination, this is the place to visit.‬

‪Ford’s Theater must be on your To Do list while visiting DC. There is so much to see and a lot of cool, interesting information. We were crunched on time and managed to fit it in to our schedule. I could have spent more time in there, which I plan to do next time. Nevertheless, even an abbreviated visit is worth the experience. Excellent job by the folks who curate this exhibit.‬

‪Despite the need for timed entry tickets, we found ourselves surrounded by a group of middle school students visiting from out of town. The entire facility was extremely crowded; there was no way to keep social distancing. And above all, over half of the kids and their chaperons wore their masks on their chins. If you fall in the high risk category, please be aware of what you will likely encounter.‬

‪Not my first time to DC, and how I've managed to miss this jewel surprised me. Run by the National Parks, admittance is free and the museum about President Lincoln is comprehensive and very well done.‬

‪The Ford’s Theatre is dedicated to sharing the story of Abraham Lincoln the 16th President of the United States.  I decided to take my son to the Ford’s Theatre because he seemed to have limited knowledge regarding Lincoln and his contributions to the United States.  
The visit to the Ford’s Theatre cost $3.00 per person and the audio recording for the tour was $5.00.  The staff is really courteous and helpful. Your journey will begin on the lower level and once the museum visit is complete you will make your way to the theatre where Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on April 14, 1865.  It is surreal to see the box where the former President sat prior to being assassinated.  The moment definitely allows one to travel back in time and contemplate what that fateful night was like for Lincoln and all who were at his side.
Lincoln was a lover of theatre and it was interesting to discover that performances still take place at the Ford’s Theatre.  If you are interested in the Life of Lincoln and in tracing his steps prior to his death the Ford’s Theatre is an excellent stop to expand your knowledge. I definitely believe it is money well spent for a great history lesson.‬

‪Everything! The National Park Service people gave so much information it helped us understand what actually transpired. Because of Covid you have to get timed tickets ahead of time and have to go to Recreation.gov but it is easy. Right across the street is the boarding house where President Lincoln was taken and died. The Hard Rock Cafe is just down the street. The metro was a short walk.‬
