About this activity
Visit: The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, 411 Elm St, Dallas, TX 75202-3301

Suddenly, at 12:30pm, after the motorcade turned from Houston Street onto Elm Street, shots were fired, killing President Kennedy and wounding Governor Connally. Bob Jackson, a Dallas Times Herald photographer, was in a press car in motorcade, eight cars behind the President. After he heard a third shot, Jackson looked up and spotted a rifle at a sixth-floor corner window in the Texas School Book Depository building.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is an educational and permanent historic exhibit that examines the life, times, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy within the context of American history. The museum's exhibition area uses historic films, photographs, artifacts and interpretive displays to document the events of the assassination, the findings of the official investigations that followed and the historical legacy of that national tragedy.

The Kennedy assassination remains one of the most significant events in American history and the assassination site is the most visited historic site in North Texas. Many of the visitors to the site come to resolve feelings of grief that persist even after over three decades. Still others, those too young to remember (now over half of the U.S. population), come to learn more about a man and an event that profoundly shaped the United States.

It was easy to book through Viator. Reasonably priced, and upon arrival we were guided to the information desk to retrieve our tickets. The line was not too long, and we were provided head sets, and the audio tour guided us through the exhibit. We enjoyed it very much. Just enough for us - about an hour and a half.

The only reason I didn't give this attraction a 5 is due to the difficulty of moving around in the museum. They provide set times for customers to come in, but it is still very crowded and hard to get around to see the displays and videos. But, the site's and sounds allowed you to "see" this tragic day in history and it is a surreal experience .

Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza When in Dallas Dealey plaza is all about History of the President Kennedy assassination. The Museum is a must see and is perfectly laid out to help you understand what was going on then. We were first on line so no real wait but some said the line could get long. I still would have waited to see this museum

We were in Dallas for a week for my wife's college reunion and were not about to pass up this piece of history. Highly informative and educational is what I'd call it. Mixed in is what one might call trivia but it's interesting stuff all the same. Not to be missed if you're in or around Dallas.
