A very worthwhile visit. Reasonably priced and very informative sight on a significant piece of history. Audio is included in the price. Quite crowded in the beginning of the tour but you didn’t care much after while the story takes you into the unfortunate day...More

Took a couple hours to get through this experience. Very well done and we really enjoyed being able to go back in time and experience this. Everything about that day is covered on this tour. Really enjoyed.

A history lesson comes alive. It doesn't give you an absolute answer but makes you think. The museum handles the issues intelligently and rationately. It gives different points of view.

The way the museum is laid out and the walking tour and seeing how LHO looked thru the window to calculate where to shoot and all the books was incrediable.

If you are looking for an overall very detailed experience of JFK this is the place for you. The audio tour suggested it would take 90 minutes but we were there for over 2 hours. Great detail and history.

We took the bus tour as well and you do follow the route of the motorcade but you also see where the officer was shot by Oswald and the house and theater that was part of that day.

I'm not sure about that - I have only ever parked my car in the lot next to the museum. I would call the museum directly & ask them where to park. 214-747-6660
