There was more to this than I thought. I planned to be through this in about an hour and was there about three. There is a large Lincoln exhibit on the lower level. I paid $10 and got the audio guide for my daughter and myself. Hers was a youth audio guide which she liked much better than the adult guides she's had to listen to in the past. After the museum, we went into the theater upstairs. That day (and possibly every day) we had to tour the theater by 11am. They still use the theater for performances and were preparing the stage when we toured. The original theater was gutted about a year after Lincoln died, but it has been restored to its 1865 appearance. There are a few items in the presidents box that are original, like the chair Mrs. Lincoln was sitting in that night. Across the street is the Peterson House where Lincoln died. It's included in the ticket price from the theater. The bed that he died in is still there if you're in to seeing such things. There is another museum in there that is nice to see and doesn't take long to tour. We walked there from the Federal Triangle Metro station, about 10 minutes.
