My wife made this a last minute stop on our way to the metro. So glad we did. Museum is layed out nicely. Plenty of time to dig into all the information presented. Learned a bunch of stuff I never knew, and not only is the theater itself a museum and pivotal part of American history, it's still a functioning theater. Once you finish at the theater itself, you get to go tour the house where Lincoln died. Powerful powerful tour.
If you love history, and have an hour to kill, make this a stop.
I found the firearms prohibited sign slightly amusing. If only that was there 148 years ago.
