The Sixth Floor Museum At Dealey Plaza3098 Votes Currently Closed
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 Reviews & Ratings
Well worth visiting. We were very lucky and walked into this museum with not one person on line (yeah!). Very easy downtown location to get to via car. Cost of admission is $18.00 (they do offer military discount). Be ready they ask you if you want to make a donation to the museum on top of the admission price LOL! You can find street parking or park at museum. Cost for parking at museum parking was $12.00 with direct access to museum (but this lot is small and when busy I bet will fill up fast!) or $10.00 in parking lot directly behind museum parking lot and is only a minute walk! All employees we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The tour is self guided audio that is simple to understand. The audio guides you to each section and you listen and read. For $18.00 I did feel it was a lot for this tour and couldn't imagine trying to maneuver around if it was crowded. We do things fast and we spent an hour at this tour
A great tribute to President Kennedy, truly one of this nation's darkest days, taking the tour made me remember what a great nation we once where. And the values that we hold true Honor, Courage, and Commitment. So even if you have no idea about what happened that day or your new to our nation please visit here and learn, as it is so much more than a tribute to the events of one day. You will learn of a great President's vision for his Nation to be a leading force in the free world, one of freedom, equality, and exploration. A vision that sadly ended that day.
We had to come here when we were in Dallas just to be a part of the history. Well worth the trip as the museum itself is amazing. To make the experience easy, plan ahead and book tickets online and allow plenty of time to go through the museum. The audio tour is well worth taking the time to go through but not essential.
Just incredible! Wonderfully created and detailed about JFK. Truly feels that you are getting a behind the scenes look at what actually happened that day. So cool to be in the presence of history. Took about an hour to get through and worth every moment. I am not a history buff but i got a LOT out of it.
Hard to say you love a place when you know you are visiting the site of a national tragedy. But the museum does a wonderful tribute to President Kennedy that doesn't just focus on his death. They discuss the times and how the Kennedy family influences the atmosphere and thinking of the 1960's. Also, they show how Kennedy's memory still influences the US to this day. Highly recommend going to this place of history for all ages
