The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, Dallas

4.6
Located in the building where Lee Harvey Oswald fired the three infamous shots that killed John F. Kennedy, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza examines the life, death, and legacy of the 35th president of the United States. The museum's exhibits use historic films, photographs, and interpretive displays to present the assassination in a historical context, drawing on government investigations that followed the event. This is the only place in the world where you can take a look through the very window on which Oswald leaned as he fired upon the presidential motorcade. Remember that only a limited number of visitors can enter at any one time, so be sure to book your timed-entry tickets well in advance.

  • It was a very crowded day, although we didn't have to wait too long to get in, but boy was it packed upstairs. They provide you with a personal audio guide which kind of isolates you from the typical shared museum experience. It was easier to read the printed materials on each montage and move more quickly through. The real draw to me was the area that Oswald used. You can look down at the street below from the next window over. Honestly, it didn't look that far away. It seemed pretty doable, and not a lot of need for the years of conspiracy. Very interesting place and a must do if you are in Dallas. Would be a 5 if less crowded.
  • Not a bad exhibit. Has a lot of information on John F. Kennedy, one of the greatest presidents of this nation. I prefer the older exhibits over the newer auto tours with the headsets though. It was pretty crowded but well the worth the time and money spent to go. Pretty nice souvenir shop. Would definitely go again but on a less crowded day to be able to see the exhibits I didn't get to see this time.
