Thank you Joshsam! We stayed there only one week, which wasn't long enough too see most of the gorgeous (and free!) museums in the capital.

Some more pictures from the city center:

Thanks! I think it's a must visit. You have the historical buildings where history happened, and 2 interesting museums attached to it.

Really great that you made it to Ford's theater.

Don't know if they had a Park Ranger to tell you there but the reason they took Lincoln only across the street rather than to the White House or a hospital was that back then most streets in Washington DC were not paved and they thought the bumpy ride would kill him immediately, hence they simply carried him across the street.

Most people don't realize it but 150 years ago the US was a pretty backward country and while Europe cities had things like Versialle in the capital of the United States they didn't even have paved streets.

Thank you guys!

Ther was an actor in the theatre, playing the role of an authentic police officer who was present at the assassination. He told vividly and convincingly the whole story.
