I visited Ford's Theater in August 2021. I bought my timed-entry ticket online and they let me go in a little earlier. The museum in the basement was crowded. There were many interesting things in the museum. In 1861 there was an assassination plot against Lincoln as he traveled to Washington DC to the inauguration called the "Baltimore Plot". Lincoln gave his first inaugural address first then he was sworn in and given the oath of office (the opposite sequence compared to today). The museum covered Civil War history, the Gettysburg address, the 1864 Overland Campaign, the 1864/1865 Battle of Petersburg, the fall of Richmond and the surrender at Appomattox. The timeline on April 14, 1865 for President Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth, the assassination and the aftermath were covered in detail. The details of each conspirator were covered. The actual murder weapon / pistol is on display which I have never seen before. Upstairs, I visited the theater and viewed the Presidential Box through a plexiglass window. The Presidential Box had not been open in the past so this was the first time I saw it. The park ranger was helpful and answered my questions. The museum had a nice gift and book shop. The only criticism I have is that it was a bit too crowded sometimes. I had a fantastic visit and learned some new things about Abraham Lincoln and the assassination.
