Owner description: One of Texas’ most visited historic sites, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. The Museum is in the former Texas School Book Depository building, where evidence of a sniper was found after the assassination of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Much of the exhibit space looks as it appeared in the 1960s. Highlights include a sniper’s perch, the FBI model used by the Warren Commission, an original teletype machine that first transmitted news of the president’s death, Oswald’s wedding ring, historic films, photos and more. An interactive display overlooks Dealey Plaza. Admission includes an audio guide, available in eight languages including ASL. The museum is open daily in 2018 except Christmas. Timed tickets can be purchased in advance at jfk.org.

I really enjoyed the museum. I felt like I was in Dallas on that November day in 1963. They really do a good job of portraying the events that happened that tragic day. Make sure you visit the memorial and other sites close to the museum. The museum was crowded, but not so much that you couldn't enjoy it. You should buy tickets online the day before to make sure you get in when you want.

This audio guided tour is a definite must see when you're in Dallas. I was only staying a night in Dallas on my was to the coast, but knew I wanted to squeeze in this museum. Definitely not disappointed. If you're thinking about it, go!

Me and the wife enjoyed the tour even though we arrived late and just had to make a quick tour 1 hour. The kids I think had a hard time understanding everything but me and the mrs helped out and answered any questions they had. I think the museum is set up nicely but could use some more exhibits , we enjoyed it though

My long held dream to go to this building and surrounding area involved in the death of JFK turned into an amazing reality. This museum is thorough and most interesting. As much as it covers JFKs death , you get a deeper story of his life and the sins of his administration. His speeches were hope filled.
If you visit Dallas this place is a must.

The tour was captivating, educational and very well organised. Gave me a totally renewed appreciation of history. A short walk to where the presidential motorcade passed through made me realised how close the building was to the road! What you watch on TV could be deceiving.
