Virtual Tour of the Ford Theatre

Go inside the historic theatre and learn about the night of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. On the night of April 14, 1865, actor and Confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth sneaked into the Presidential Box and shot President Lincoln. Today, the theatre looks very much the way it did that fateful night.

Come and join us as we go on a virtual tour of Ford’s Theatre and discover the details of the assassination conspiracy and the fate of those involved in that historic event. The tour includes stops at the balcony and orchestra levels of the historic theatre, entrance to the President’s Box where Booth waited, the historic stage where participants can see the theatre from an actor’s perspective and the back alley where you can follow Booth’s escape route.

FREE! Registration is required. Please Note: This is a virtual program via Zoom. Participants will receive a link to the program via email upon completing registration.
