Great displays, very informative. You can go through at your pace and take as much time as you like reading the displays and looking around. The actual gun used in the assignation is on display. When you you leave the museum area and go into the theater, rangers give brief talks on the events of that fateful night. The ticket includes entry into the house across street where Lincoln actually died, but the line was long so we skipped that part. When you get to Ford's theater, you might see a line outside - this is a line for ticket holders, not purchasing (well tickets are free but you still need one). Bypass the line and go inside to get a timed ticket. After you get your ticket, and it's time for your entry, then you wait on that outside line. We had to wait about 45 minutes for our entry after receiving our tickets - we went to the gift shop across the street to kill time. We went ealrly-ish (9:30), I can't say what the wait is for entry if you go later.
