Overview

One of Texas’ most visited historic sites, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. The Museum is in the former Texas School Book Depository building, where evidence of a sniper was found after the assassination of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Much of the exhibit space looks as it appeared in the 1960s. Highlights include a sniper’s perch, the FBI model used by the Warren Commission, an original teletype machine that first transmitted news of the president’s death, Oswald’s wedding ring, historic films, photos and more. An interactive display overlooks Dealey Plaza. Admission includes an audio guide, available in eight languages including ASL. The museum is open daily in 2018 except Christmas. Timed tickets can be purchased in advance at jfk.org.

One of my top three favorite places. I loved everything about it. It's historic, reflective, and informative.

It's a must visit place for someone who's into revising history. Well maintained, lots of details and informative videos about JFK and how it all unfolded that day. TIP: Look out for the "X" marks on the road next to the museum.

If you’re a history buff or if you were around when JFK was assassinated this is the coolest place to go! You can even stand in the window where Oswald shot JFK! Neat place for a history buff.

A hint - if you buy your entry ticket beforehand, either online or at the gift shop across from the museum, don’t join the queue outside -that’s for buying tickets. Rather go inside and join the queue to enter the museum. We didn’t and wasted...More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon - maybe weekdays are better. Long line, but well managed. Problem started with the 6th floor. The audio tour is quite good, but in places - forget about seeing the actual items displayed. Just can't get close without being rude....More

Enjoyed the museum. It was a little difficult navigating the route to walk that followed the audio tour but it was very informative.

Well done - the mobile device is an excellent touch, allowing an easy flow through the 6th floor from board to board. The only thing I think was missing was tje minimal coverage of JFK in his youth, but that is not really what this...More

I'm not sure about that - I have only ever parked my car in the lot next to the museum. I would call the museum directly & ask them where to park. 214-747-6660
