10th Street, NW closure

Due to utility work, the intersection of 10th Street and F Street is currently closed and inaccessible to vehicular traffic. The Atlantic Building parking garage can be accessed by turning north on 10th Street from E Street NW. Please use extreme caution when accessing the garage as the block serves 2-way traffic during this closure. Please allow for extra time to arrive at the museum and theatre. It is expected the intersection will reopen in late August.

You cannot possibly be a history nerd and not visit Ford’s Theatre. I cannot tell you how many times I have now been there or how many times I've dragged different friends in with me. Such an awesome experience, and not likely one you will ever forget.

Loved coming to Ford’s Theatre back in the day, but the renovations of a few years ago has made it even better. The theater remains as it was, but now there's an entire museum underneath it. Don't forget to get your ticket for the house across the street where president Lincoln died. It also has a museum in it now.

So much history here! Still operational as a theatre too. It was a great experience being here and there’s a particular wall before you go into the actual theatre part that tell both sides version of their day before the final events and it was amazing to see as well.
