Very interesting museum which is well laid out and full of information. It does not try to give you the answer but presents the facts and leaves you to decide. Everyone knows the story but this provides so much more detail.

The museum is great and provides many details about the 1960’s, the assassination and more. For those that might be conspiracy oriented, the museum does not really get into that, but you will find plenty out on the plaza. Plan on spending about 1-2 hours...More

We decided to ride DART to downtown Dallas for the museum visit. The West End dart station is right outside the museum. Parking is also available for $5. We walked around Dealey Plaza before entering and thoroughly enjoyed the historical visit. I would recommend buying...More

To not visit the Sixth Floor Museum when in Dallas would be like not visiting The Cavern Club when visting Liverpool from abroad. It's such an historical icon. We pre booked our entrance tickets before leaving the UK which was one of my better ideas...More

This museum exhibit is a tasteful, forthright depiction of the tragic assignation of JFK - a scene that has been replayed in the national psyche hundreds, if not thousand of times. I walked the plaza for the first time with the familiarity of having walked...More

You are given a headset when you arrive and it guides you through the museum. It gets crowded and it is nothing you haven't seen on tv. I would have liked to see more on the conspiracies. There's a few interesting things like the telegrams...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

The 30 minute time slots are for entry. Once you're in you can stay as long as you want. We were there at least 2 hours. There's a lot of reading and photos of the time to view. It's really worth the visit. Hope this answers... More
