I'll start by saying I've never believed / did not believe in a conspiracy theory behind JFK's death. I never took a stance one way or the other.
This was the first time I've left a museum in the US and felt like it was propaganda.
The tribute to JFK's presidency and legacy is well done but I had some serious issues with the museum itself. They reference Zapruder's film and show dozens of still images of it but never show the film. They talk about how you can "clearly" see such-and-such in an image and the images are not the up-to-date digitally enhanced images you'll see all over the history channel/CNN and they really aren't THAT "clear".
Exhibits also contradict themselves. In ONE exhibit alone, they state, each time as a fact, 3 separate costs that Lee Harvey Oswald paid for the gun.
I could keep going but here's my suggestion -- pay the $16 to get in and plan to spend a good few hours, it's worth it and just go in with an open mind and be a critical thinker. Don't swallow what they're saying without chewing. Maybe you'll agree with the Warren Commission findings when you leave, maybe you won't, but either way you'll learn a lot about JFK and his assassination.
