On my way down for a work trip, I stopped in Washington, D.C. to visit a couple friends. While I waited for them to get out of work, I popped around to a couple museums I hadn't yet visited before. The great thing about DC is the vast number of free museums, of which Ford's Theater is one. Most well known for the location in which Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, it is also back to currently being a working theater. There is a pretty interesting museum attached to the theater going over the timeline of events. I didn't realize that John Wilkes Booth, the assassin, had a larger plot with a number of other individuals who were also involved. I definitely recommend going if you are in the area and have some time!
