Docents in period costumes lead visitors throughout the two-story house where Dr. Mudd lived with his wife and children. One of the upstairs bedrooms is where John Wilkes Boothe was taken to have his broken leg set after jumping from a balcony in Ford's Theatre (30 miles away in Washington, DC) after shooting Pres. Abraham Lincoln. The home is full... 更多
I'll admit it's kind of odd to have a museum for someone who's only claim to fame is patching up the guy who killed Abraham Lincoln. Nevertheless, it's an interesting enough tour if you're looking for way to kill about an hour.

Step back in time to a home that was fully functional. Think how people lived and survived in a time when money was short but love of family shows in this home. Look at the flower garden and other outdoor beauty.

The home and property are lovely with many of the items in the house original to the owners. The docents do a decent job and it is... 更多
It was fun to walk thru the house and see what time was like 'back when'. Santa and Mrs Claus was there when we went through and that was nice for the kids to see.
