In this guided tour, you’ll discover the details of Lincoln’s assassination and the fate of those involved in that historic event. Stops on the tour include: Balcony and Orchestra levels of the historic theatre; Entrance to the President’s Box, where Booth waited to shoot the President; the historic stage, where you can see the theatre from an actor’s perspective; and the back alley, where you can follow Booth’s escape route.
Tours are limited to 20 participants and led by a trained Ford’s Theatre guide with a passion for history. This guided tour covers the theatre only; you may wish to reserve earlier tickets to the full historic site including the museum, Petersen House and Aftermath Exhibits.
Length: 1 hour. Recommended for ages 8 and older. Tickets $28.
