Public Programs

Join us for a virtual event exploring leadership, creativity and Lincoln’s legacy. Or take an intimate, guided tour and explore the Lincoln assassination story in more depth.

We regularly offer patrons the chance to delve deeper into Lincoln’s legacy.

Through our Cabinet Conversation series, you can join a live virtual conversation about leadership, creativity and Lincoln’s legacy. Or participate in an online challenge and perform Lincoln’s words on your own.

When we are able to safely return to our on-site programming, you’ll be able to follow an actor playing Detective James McDevitt on a walking tour of downtown Washington, D.C., as he investigates the Lincoln Assassination Conspiracy. Or join one of our passionate guides for an intimate tour of one of our historic spaces. 

We also occasionally offer special events in the historic theatre, including play readings, author talks and oratory performances by students and teachers.
