After being shot at Ford’s Theatre, the unconscious president was carried across the street to die at Petersen House. Its tiny, unassuming rooms create a moving personal portrait of the president’s slow and tragic death. Entrance to the home is in conjunction with the Ford’s Theatre tour, so obtain tickets at the box office there.
