Beautiful old theatre in DC, poor Lincoln was shot here, interesting Lincoln museum in the building. The Christmas Carol was a wonderful performance, we gt into the x-mas spirit

If you want to catch a show and get a nostalgic experience, see it here! Looks like a back in the day, way, way, back in the day theater. The only Lincoln references I'll make is that they believe him to haunt the theater and the "Abe L. wuz here - Honest" written on the bathroom wall (funny)! Beautiful place!

An informative and well designed museum, an authentic look at the day John Wilkes Booth killed President Lincoln. Very interesting for history buffs.

If you're a Lincoln buff then you'll enjoy this one. It's not located next to the rest of the monuments but still worth a visit to read the history associated with the place, see his death mask, and things like that.

It was interesting to see where Abe Lincoln was shot and across the street where he died. The event is free. For those Hard Rock lovers it was across the street.
