We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Dr. Mudd house! Our tour guide was Dorothea and she was absolutely fantastic. She was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all of our many questions without hesitation. Much of the furniture and other household items are original to Dr. Mudd and his wife. We visited the Ford’s theater last year and this was the perfect supplement. We all learned a lot about the history of the assassination as well as of the time period in general. We visited on one of the hottest days of the year and were happy that the house was well air conditioned. The tour made us feel like we were invited guests. Well worth the trip!

You will learn about so many more details about the assassination of President Lincoln, the conspiritors involved, Dr.Mudd's roll in this part of history that you never knew before, and the reasons behind the death of this amazing president. Plan for up to 1 and a half, to 2 hrs to view the home and listen to the interesting facts you will learn that day. Young people from 4th grade to adults will be fascinated by the history here.

My family and I have visited the Mudd Home many times. We especially like touring at Christmas time. It had retained a rural feel, unlike manny settings in and around Washington DC.

We visited the Dr. Mudd House & Museum during their Victorian Christmas celebration. The staff was dressed in period costumes. There was a Union camp set up on one side of the property, and a Confederate camp set up on the opposite side. Take some time to explore the grounds. Even though the property is less than an hour from the heart of bustling DC, there is a rural feel to it. It is 5 minutes off the main road, but feels far away.

The interior of the house was decked out with Christmas trees in nearly every room decorated in beautiful handmade ornaments. I would have loved to purchase some of the ornaments but they weren't for sale. The Docents were very knowledgeable and friendly; I learned a lot about Dr. Mudd and his role in the Lincoln assassination conspiracy. There were many Mudd family items still in the house, which was nice to see. But the history really came alive for me as I ascended the stairs to the second floor and one of the Docents said "You're touching the same handrail that John Wilkes Booth used when he went up the stairs." That made it real. I was touching history. I look forward to another trip to the Dr. Mudd House & Museum, perhaps in the spring or summer, where I can see and learn even more.

We stopped by on a Saturday but found no information about hours or tours or specifics that would allow us to stop and go in. We were inroute to a birthday party and thought we would come back later. We did and found a small sign by the closed gate that told us they were only open Sat & Wed. Sorry we missed it.
