About Ford's Theatre

A working theatre, historical monument, world-class museum and learning center, Ford’s Theatre is the premier destination in Washington, D.C., to explore and celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s ideals and leadership principles: courage, integrity, tolerance, equality and creative expression. On April 14, 1865, Abraham Lincoln visited Ford’s and was shot by John Wilkes Booth; he died the next morning in the Petersen House, a boarding house located across the street. Ford’s Theatre remained closed for more than 100 years. The stately downtown D.C. building officially reopened in 1968 as a national historic site and working theatre.


Some seats in the theater have a slightly obstructed view.

Although we wanted to take Metro which is only two blocks away, they were doing track work and it would have taken us too long. There are numerous parking garages in the area. The lot next to the theater is the most expensive at $30, but just two blocks away, we paid $10.

The theater is right in the heart of the theater district. Between Warner and Verizon Center so there are lots of places to eat
