We visited late Saturday afternoon 2/21/15. We were a short walk from the plaza following a dinner downtown, and am very glad we decided to see this history. However, the locals that are selling books / dvds on the street are more than a little annoying. I don't like to be rude to people, but this is one of those... More

There was so much information to absorb. Lots of videos and pictures along the narrated tour. It was nice to be able to go at your own pace however it was extremely crowded and sometimes hard to see the exhibits because people would not move on. I did find it upsetting to see all of the people who rushed out... More

You get to see it all...it left me with an strange feeling knowing I was standing so close to where JFK was shot! Then when you go outside and walk on the grassy knoll and such its just weird. Pretty sad to tell you the truth.

this was a travel back in time, I brought a very dear friend from out of state and tour the plaza. I never knew this was so interesting and controversial. We loved it.

Lived in dallas for 54 years, driven by it 100's of times. Never was that impressed. But I guess from a hitorical standpoint, there is no location in Dallas taht compares. Just don't exprct more than a little hill.

Dealey Plaza of course is recognized at the place where JFK was assasinated. It is definately a must visit for any history buff. The "Grassy Knoll" in reality is not the wide strip of grass you may think it is. But seeing the "X" on the street where he was shot does help put everything into perspective. The School Book...

Very informative and emotive. You were transported back in time to the 1960's. Well worth the ticket to enter.

3rd time of being to Dealey Plaza. This time I had my 5 year old with me. He enjoyed it and it was nice to share some history with him. If you are only going to the Plaza there is $5 parking right behind the Dealey structure.

There are some guys selling a newspaper type brochure in plastic and some guys that will guide you on a walking tour. We said no thanks. This is where you can get on a tour trolley.
