In our museum, you can see rare artifacts from the Lincoln assassination, follow Lincoln’s presidency and learn about the conspiracy.
At different times throughout the day, you can hear a National Park Service ranger talk about the events of April 14, 1865 or go on a self-guided tour. In the spring and summer, you can see a short one-act play called One Destiny. At certain times, the theatre is closed for matinees and rehearsals.
After you see the historic theatre, visit the house where Lincoln died. The house is located across the street from the theatre. This small home accommodates 15 people at a time.
View exhibits about what happened immediately after the assassination. Follow Lincoln’s funeral train from Washington, D.C., to Springfield, Illinois, and learn about his legacy. Or follow John Wilkes Booth's escape and the trial of the conspirators.
