“Superb”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Thanks so much for being so thoughtful in your exhibits in this museum. As a history teacher I was grateful on how accessible this museum was and would love to bring students here. Great mix of videos, pictures and audio. Very well though out, if wanted to hear more about a certain event there was always more on the audio tour. I am grateful I came. You realize how close the shooter or shooters were to JFK. As well so many interesting facts and perspectives about that day. Thank you very much, this made my trip to Dallas.

“Very educational”
Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

Very impressed with the museum. They did a very good job of making you feel like you took a step back in time. I did not realize how close very close together the area is.

“very moving experience .”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

It was a great walk through time. We used the handset and got a great historical lesson. The exhibit was well done and made you feel as though you were at the scene of the crime. The upper level was closed but i would highly recommend this stop for all ages.

“chilling”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

I am not a history buff and I thought I would be bored but I must say that it was quite facinating. The tour is an audio tour and it gives you background into Kennedy's life and the state of the nation during the 1960's. It was chilling to look out the window and to imagine what Lee Harvey Oswald saw on the day of the shooting. Well worth the trip!

“Gives a visual to the history”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

was very interesting. 6 year old was interested for only a short period of time so wouldn't recommend for young kids but great for the teen crowd and older.
