Stop At:  
The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
Suddenly, at 12:30pm, after the motorcade turned from Houston Street onto Elm Street, shots were fired, killing President Kennedy and wounding Governor Connally. Bob Jackson, a Dallas Times Herald photographer, was in a press car in motorcade, eight cars behind the President. After he heard a third shot, Jackson looked up and spotted a rifle at a sixth-floor corner window in the Texas School Book Depository building. The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is an educational and permanent historic exhibit that examines the life, times, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy within the context of American history. The museum's exhibition area uses historic films, photographs, artifacts and interpretive displays to document the events of the assassination, the findings of the official investigations that followed and the historical legacy of that national tragedy. The Kennedy assassination remains one of the most significant events in American history and the assassination site is the most visited historic site in North Texas. Many of the visitors to the site come to resolve feelings of grief that persist even after over three decades. Still others, those too young to remember (now over half of the U.S. population), come to learn more about a man and an event that profoundly shaped the United States.

Photo gallery is fabulous

Pictures were great. The coverage of the time before the event was very informative. The spot on the corner window where Oswald supposedly shot from could have been staged better.

We bought tickets in advance so even though there was an extremely long line we were starting our tour within 10 minutes of arriving. The sixth floor museum is a wonderful experience and has a lot of information about JFK and the assassination. It was surreal and very somber being in the exact place this tragedy happened and it was an experience I will never forget.

We thought the whole experience was informative and moving. We enjoyed the headsets and being able to go at our own pace. It did get Busy at some points.

Self-guided tour of Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

We visited on a weekend and it was fairly crowded. However, we purchased a voucher through viator on-line which we exchanged for tickets at the admission desk, resulting in a much shorter amount of time in line to get in. We also opted for the self guided audio tour, which is well worth the cost, and really a necessity to fully appreciate the museum. Also allows you to go at your own pace.

So Easy

So easy. No waiting in line at the 6th Floor Book Depository Museum. Will definitely use again for other site seeing tours. For three retired women who wanted to take the least hassle route, this was it

Something to see in Dallas

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The audio tour and the never-ending panels of information I could read online didn't really have the makings of the emotional experience you should have at such a place. Being in the actual building and seeing the spot where Oswald took aim has such historical significance and is tied to such an emotionally turbulent time period, that an audio tour and the absence of human interaction leaves the visitor underwhelmed and without a real "experience." I think they could do a lot better.

Great interactive displays

History is at its best when it feels alive and vibrant! The 6th floor museum achieves this! The audio for each station and the ability to review each station at your leisure is excellent. The whole experience brings that dreadful day in November of 1963 to life.

A Must See

A must see if you’re in Dallas. The creators of this exhibit did a miraculous job putting it together. The audio players lead you through the entire museum and explain every step of the journey. Everything is in the perspective of the way the government said it occurred. I won’t go further into that. But this museum is literally fantastic.
