“Relive the history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Very cool to do this with the 6th floor museum audio tour. So much history to relive and see, take in the moments. Definitely check it out, figure out for yourself what really happened!

“Walked the Grassy Knoll & Relived History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

The plaza is a wonderful tribute to President Kennedy. Walked on the grassy knoll reliving that fateful day in November. In the middle of the rod is a large X where the assassination took place, where so many people stood to have a photo taken. I could not stand on the X

“Yes you have to go but I wish I had not!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Lots of strange people having their photos taken standing on the crosses marked on the road where JFK was shot.

“A very moving experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Walking around this hallowed area is beyond words. It's sad and it's very solemn there. But it's a part of our history that must not be forgotten.

“A must see, but don't expect too much”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

No mater what, this is the place to see when in Dallas. But be warned that it is a 5 minutes deal. Have a walk by the area and makes it ten minutes. Basically you may see 2 crosses on the street where Kennedy was shot and take a look from below on the infamous building from where Lee shot him.

And be prepared to be stopped over and over by guys trying to sell you DVDs and explain you the event that happened here. Kind of annoying for me, though. The 6th floor is next door, but we were scared away by the price tag.
