Ford’s Theater is part of the National Park system, so there is no cost to visit the Theater and Museum. However, you will need to stand in line to get a ticket because there are so many people. The basement is a museum that depicts the Lincoln’s presidency. A few short videos are available for viewing. After the museum, you can go up to the theater to see the box where Lincoln was sitting when Booth shot him. Across the street is the place where Lincoln died.
