Anyone who has shepherded friends and relatives through the dark spaces of Ford Theater Museum in the past should be able to sit back and breathe a sign of relief. The newly refurbished Museum now sparkles like the fine jewel it is, and tourists will be better able to see the artifacts and items on display.
The Museum has long been the place to go before or after a play at the Theater, but rarely does anyone come strictly for the Museum. That will now change, and the uplifting spirit one feels upon entering almost dampens the sadness of its portrayal of Lincoln’s death.
As for the theater itself, those horrible antique-y seats have been replaced! Three cheers for the new Ford’s Theater!
