About Sixth Floor Museum, Dealey Plaza, Dallas
The assassination of President John F. Kennedy is known to all. The November of 1963 was a tragic month for the residents of Dallas. While passing through Dallas, then President of the United States was fatally shot by a young sniper Lee Harvey Oswald. From the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository, Oswald fired his rifle at least three shots that resulted in JFK’s death. For a while after, Dallas was only associated with the demise of the country’s 35th President. The city decided to spin this in their favor and turned the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository building into a museum, delving into the minutest of details involving the assassination. A blow-by-blow account including some 400 photos and a documentary film constitute a majority of the exhibits; the most famous one, however, is the ‘snipers nest’- the spot from where Lee Harvey Oswald put a bullet in John Kennedy.

Loved the self guided tour with audio included. The only issue is that it gets really crowded but it could have been because of a collage football game that weekend with two out of town teams. Other than that it was great. The area where Lee Harvey Oswald took the shots has been preserved and put back the same way it was when he was there.
Wow! I've been here twice and I want to go back. So informative and well organized. The lady at the front desk is very welcoming (thanks Suga!) Do not...do NOT go during spring break! Otherwise, it's not that crowded. I spent 3 hours the first time and 2 hours the second. Definitely check out the gift shop too.
Very informative, everything you could want to know about JFK. I only wish it wasn't so crowded. Everyone stops listening to the audio guide at the same time so it's hard to see unless you bully your way to the front. But we very much enjoyed it otherwise. A true piece of history.
This thing was packed and very expensive. It would have been much better had their been a tour guide. They give you a little iPhone type of thing to listen to for the tour. It makes it very boring listening to a recording while walking around looking at pictures. The best thing about the whole thing is seeing the view where the Lee Harvey Oswald was when he shot him. If you do feel the need to do Official Dallas City pass and save some big money.
This was a thought provoking look at a turning point in American history. I loved that you have your own personal guide which allows you to go at your own pace. The exhibit covers not just the Assassination, but of the entire time period. Well worth the money.
