This museum was fantastic. The audio is a must do!
The audio, photos, visuals etc were all so well set up and everything flowed brilliantly.
Yes it can get busy but this just shows how popular it is. Just ignore the guys downstairs trying to sell you guides, I imagine they have nothing to do with the museum and are just a pain.
Seeing where JFK was shot was very moving.
Highly recommend!

It's chilling to take this tour and walk in the footsteps of the murder of a president. But, it's a must do in order to understand what happened and to get a first hand sense of the history. I actually learned a lot in a very short period that I did not know, and I thought I knew the whole story. I honestly felt chilled to see the spot that Ruby crouched in, it was almost overwhelming.

Finally went here with my parents after trying to figure out what to do on weekend, great decision. For all of us it was extremely informative and interesting. I would recommend it if you're looking for something to do. Sad day in history. I do have to say, be prepared for it to be pretty crowded.

Very interesting and well laid out. A bit expensive, but a great tale of the assassination of JFK. Much more than we expected for this singular historical event. Worth a visit.

We have lived in Dallas a long time, but had never gotten around to visiting the Sixth Floor Museum until recently. It is worth a visit. They have a self guided audio tour that you can take at your own pace. You can spend 30 minutes or all day there, I think most people would take about 90 minutes.
