Why you might roll your eyes:
You’ve seen the tourists in matching T-shirts clumped outside.
Why you’ll love it:
Whether you take a guided or self-guided tour or you buy a theater ticket to get inside, gazing up at the presidential box and imagining the night when Abraham Lincoln was slain is a moving experience.
This April is the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s assassination, and there’s no better place to honor the occasion—including at a round-the-clock event on April 14 and 15, when there will be ranger talks and actors in the streets providing “first-person accounts” of the shooting.
