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.

Sixth Floor Museum, Dealey Plaza, Dallas Reviews - Write a Review
This museum was informative and offered really poignant views of Elm St. and Dealey Plaza. The interpretive material openly acknowledges the wide range of conspiracies surrounding JFK's assassination and examines the reliability of evidence used by the Warren and House Commission investigations. This museum is a must-visit for history buff in downtown Dallas. A tip: buy tickets across the street ahead of time. You have to wait in line for 10-15 minutes just to buy tickets. Your ticket will then be for a particular time, usually 30-60 min later. Skip that hassle by buying a ticket with the time you prefer either online or across the street (a store related to the museum).
This a very thorough introduction to JFK and the events leading up to and immediately following his assassination. I recommend giving yourself two hours to get through the exhibit, not because it takes quite that long, but because you don't want to have to rush through any of the rich historical resources. P.S. this was a very memorable date spot.
Well worth the visit. The tour through the sixth floor of the old Book Depository is quite informative and self-paced. Each person is issued a play-away audio device and a pair of headphones and you listen to a short narrative at each of about forty sections as you wind your way through. At each stop you will see photos and artifacts, as well as see and hear video and audio clips pertinent to the events being described. This helps bring you back to the look and feel of the era, a real bonus, I think. Plan on spending about two hours or so. Adjacent the museum is the Grassy Knoll we've all heard of. Also, the road in front of the Knoll is marked with two white Xs indicating the place where the first shots impacted and then where the fatal shot occurred.
Loved this tour!! My boyfriend is a JFK fanatic and this was the first time he had ever been to Dealy Plaza. He was completely in awe. Said it was a surreal experience. After the tour we walked outside and took a lot of pictures. Very informative tour :) We will be back !
I found the city of Dallas to be a very friendly and warm place - until I got to this museum. The staff here are horrid. Rude, brusque and just going through the motions. Such a contrast from the regular people of Dallas. Great piece of history, let down BADLY by the appalling attitude of the staff. With 385,000 visitors a year, maybe the city doesn't have to try very hard, but the experience was really a downer with the horrible people on hand.
