Take an intimate, guided tour and explore the Lincoln assassination story in more depth. Or experience a special event in the historic theatre.

We regularly offer patrons the chance to delve deeper into the Lincoln assassination story. Follow an actor playing Detective James McDevitt on a walking tour of downtown Washington, D.C., as he investigates the Lincoln Assassination Conspiracy. Join one of our passionate guides for an intimate tour of one of our historic spaces. You will have the chance to see spaces not available during a daytime historic site visit.

We also occasionally offer special events in the historic theatre, including play readings, author talks and oratory performances by students and teachers.
