The Sixth Floor Museum At Dealey PlazaCurrently 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.

One of the best museums I have visited. I really enjoyed the detailed tour. One of the first times I have used headphones for a tour. After my visit I felt so knowledgeable about the events that occurred. It is better for kids that are a little mature or older. My three year old and 22 month really got antsy. We also didnt get them headphones. When in Dallas, this is a must visit.
This was an EXCELLENT tour of American history. To be more feet away from where history was forever changed was somewhat surreal. I would suggest this for anyone visiting Dallas. The museum store has a lot of cool things too. One very good thing is the audio tour. You get a set of headphones and a device that looks like a cellphone. You can listen and go through the tour at your leisure, which is MUCH better than a guided tour..
This museum is one-of-a- kind no doubt! I loved the interactive touches placed together. Audio made the world of a difference for me along with the information provided. The two together truly made me feel like I was in that time. Also another #historybuffsunite location (: Another are of this museum I recommend, no doubt, is the gift shop. Jackie-O represented well with Jack's legacy.
Really enjoyed this experience. Well laid out, extremely informative, love the audio guided tour where everyone received headphones and were able to enjoy the exhibits at their own pace. Despite the number of people in the museum, I didn't feel rushed or cramped at all because we were free to explore each area according to our interests. The current exhibit on the upper level is also spacious and very nice, the staff at the ticket counter was very friendly and sweet, and the gift store had a lot of delightful souvenirs to choose from. Certainly a well planned and extremely well executed use of such an iconic landmark of American history. Wonderful!
Awesome experience if you've never been there. It feels like it throws you back to the day it actually happened. Great shoppes in the area and great eating as well. Museum is extremely informative and user friendly. Definitely recommended if you're staying in Dallas. One word of caution: there is no such thing as public parking in downtown Dallas. You will pay but credit card options are available if you dont have cash on hand.
