They have gracefully and peacefully dealt with the tragic loss of President John F. Kennedy and the intertwining of Dallas history in this museum. Very moving and definitely a destination when in town.

Decide for yourself if Lee Harvey Oswald could have pulled this off alone. X marks the spot in the street where Kennedy's life ended. So sad!

A well-structured tour, mist of the information will be filet yet it fills in some gaps and provides depth leading in and out of the fateful day. Be sure to tour the surrounding area (grassy knoll, etc.), which isn’t anything like I imagined from photos...More

Such an amazing experience. This museum tour is a must if coming to Dallas. Loved the self paced aspect so you had a chance to take extra time to see the areas that interest you the most.

We found the Sixth Floor Museum to be a tasteful and informative museum. It was quite busy the day we attended so I would recommend pre booking.

When I visit historical museums, I tend to get bored from reading all of the information. At this museum, however, I was intrigued the entire time. The interactive audio tour complemented the information presented perfectly. I highly recommend going!

This is a very interesting museum. There are not a lot artifacts to look at, but the history around the JFK assassination is well presented. Bring some time as lines can be fairly long.

We took the bus tour as well and you do follow the route of the motorcade but you also see where the officer was shot by Oswald and the house and theater that was part of that day.

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

There are tons of options within your requirements. Most of the downtown hotels will be more expensive, but you can try the Lawrence, the Magnolia, the Adolphus (parking is $24 a night), and the Fairmont for web specials. Sometimes they have great deals--sometimes not a $ off. The Belmont is an interesting place to stay. I just checked their rates for your time period and you can get a nice room for $109 or $129, and there are no parking charges. This retro property is just over the...More

We are going to be staying with a friend in Trophy Club for about 10 days in May. I'd like to get some opinions on what sites/attractions we shouldn't miss while there. We know we'll be going to the Sixth Floor Museum/Texas School Book Depository. We may also visit the Dallas Heritage Village, the Grapevine train, and wineries. I'd love to get some input from locals or those that visit the area often on both our ideas and any others. Thanks!

Have a look at the Stockyards National Historic District in Fort Worth. Lots of western flavor there, if that would interest you.
