  • So much to see and learn about the city's origin in addition to learning about the Kennedy assassination.

  • Very exciting to be on Elm Street at the corner of the National Museum (which used to be where the Texas School Book Depository was located). There was an "X" where JFK was shot on Elm Street...

  • It was surreal being at a place that influenced American history so drastically. It is a very interesting, yet peaceful, memorial site. A must see if you have studied JFKs life.
  • This is a piece of History you must visit to fully experience. Ominous and eerie feeling to visit this historical site. The sky was sunny and the weather beautiful but the grief of loosing JFK lingers in the air. His death impacted so many for so many reasons. A husband, father, President was not just taken there but so much more. I think this is why you still feel it in your soul visiting this area. The area is clean well cared for. It is a safe place to visit if paying attention. Traffic is fast and abundant so take caution. I want to go back. See the muesum and experience the tour. I have read it is like taking a step back in time. A few of my favorite quotes…” The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.” “Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.” John F Kennedy
