The Sixth Floor Museum At Dealey Plaza - Review
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.

The Sixth Floor Museum At Dealey Plaza, Dallas Reviews
We visited on 10/8/18. Highly recommend getting the Dallas City Pass (which we picked up at another attraction we did first) as it allowed us to skip the long ticket line and go to the information desk and get immediate tickets and a return time 45 minutes later. The cafe in the gift shop across the street was the perfect place to grab a quick bite (pricey- 2 veggie wraps and two water bottles were $28.70) and browse to pass the 45 minute wait. The line to start is long but moves pretty quickly. The audio headsets let you go at your own pace and the crowds never get too overwhelming. The museum is very well done. No photos allowed inside. Parking was $8 and there seemed to be plenty available. DART also stopped there for those using public transport. Definitely worth seeing.
Amazing! I was not really sure what to expect from this museum after reading through a bunch of reviews. Here is what I have to say after making a visit to this museum. It is a must visit for all. They have done a great job at capturing many details of not only the life of JFK but also this horrific tragedy. I do strongly advise to buy your tickets online before going. I bought mine on Saturday night and went on Sunday morning right when they open at 10am. There was already line and probably half were buying tickets there. When I left a few hours later, the line was even longer. The audio tour is great and maybe the only issue is at times it can get really crowded. But as you nice along there becomes more room and it becomes less of an issue. Well, what are you waiting for? Go! Go now!
Not a bad exhibit. Has a lot of information on John F. Kennedy, one of the greatest presidents of this nation. I prefer the older exhibits over the newer auto tours with the headsets though. It was pretty crowded but well the worth the time and money spent to go. Pretty nice souvenir shop. Would definitely go again but on a less crowded day to be able to see the exhibits I didn't get to see this time.
We did the audio tour listening to and followed through the museum. Its AMAZING! I highly recommend seeing this. Standing where it all happened is surreal. It takes a couple of hours. If you take the time to read each section there is a lot of great and interesting information. Love the interactive TVs near the window and the recreated snipers nest. The museum does a beautiful job of telling the story and evoking genuine emotion.
It was a very crowded day, although we didn't have to wait too long to get in, but boy was it packed upstairs. They provide you with a personal audio guide which kind of isolates you from the typical shared museum experience. It was easier to read the printed materials on each montage and move more quickly through. The real draw to me was the area that Oswald used. You can look down at the street below from the next window over. Honestly, it didn't look that far away. It seemed pretty doable, and not a lot of need for the years of conspiracy. Very interesting place and a must do if you are in Dallas. Would be a 5 if less crowded.
