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.

  • The museum was just okay… lots of things to read and a lot of people crammed on top of each other trying to read each sign. I felt like I was always in someone’s way. Very informative though. I...

  • Historic museum! It tells a great story about the assassination of JFK! It really provides thorough explanations and narratives and sets up the actual location of the gunman. The surrounds are also nice to explore. I’d recommend arriving thirty mins before your appointed museum ticket time to check out the X spots and take photos. I recommend the earliest time for museum as it is nice and quiet! There are lots of tourists! Parking is $12 for all day basically. Tickets are only purchased online so be sure to buy it online beforehand!
  • It was too crowded on. Weekday at 1pm. Hardly had space to stand and read the exhibits. I guess it was because of the SC2022 crowed. The good - informative, good insights, exhibits and information, also it was an actual side gave another perspective. The bad - writings were too long to stand and read, some people can't stand for hours just to read the material. It was a good idea to show some of the videos, those were good but the text was bit too much. Could be replaced with audio guides. Parking - paid (I guess it was $10) Ticket price - $18 for adults and we had a 5 years kid with us, they charged $14 (youth). I reminded them that he is 5 years and she re adjusted the price.
