Ford's Theatre National Historic Site began a phased reopening in May 2021.

During our current phase of reopening, we are operating with limited days and hours. The museum and theatre are open six days a week; closed only on Tuesdays. We are accepting group sales reservations to the theatre and museum only. The Petersen House and Aftermath Exhibits are currently closed.

Tickets to visit Ford’s Theatre and Museum through November 29 are now on sale. Tickets for December will go on sale at a later date. Our visitation schedule varies from week to week this winter; be sure to check our calendar when planning your visit.

Tickets for in-person performances of My Lord, What a Night and A Christmas Carol and The Mountaintop are now on sale. An on-sale date for Grace will be announced in November 2021.
