Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
This is a permanent exhibition of the tragic events leading up to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The museum was opened in 1989, and is located in the Texas School Book Depository building, where Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly shot the late President. Displays include a moving overview of the time period, and the life and accomplishments of the 35th President of the United States. Enlarged police photographs, news footage, and audio cassettes allow visitors to re-visit the tragic events of November 22, 1963. Who knows who shot JFK (the Warren Commission notwithstanding), but it will give you pause seeing that Oswald's alleged shots may have been easier than photography or newsreels would indicate. Audio cassette tours are available in French, Italian, German, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish, in addition to English. Special audio tours are designed for children ages 6-12.
When you get to the museum they give you a head set. It gives you very clear directions on where to stand. Then it explains what you are looking at and the signicance of it. Lots of documentary around the place with live footage from the 1960's. It is amazing all of the things John Kennedy accomplished in 1000 days in office. Some pictures of their wedding, Jackie, and kids. One spot of the museum is set up exactly when JFK was shot. Went outside and stood on the grassy knoll. Very nice museum.
Don't miss this. It is incredible. Stand in nearly the same spot where Oswald stood on that horrible day. See a wonderful tribute to JFK. Relive history. Hear the conspiracy theories from people across the street at the monument.
