Opens late, wish it opened earlier. Get your tickets across the street and buy your souvenirs there. It was interesting visit the tour was great. But the questions still remain. One shooter no way. Go down to the street across the street by the pond...More

This is a well thought out and interesting tour of the building from which President Kennedy was shot. Headphones were provided for the comprehensive details of this historic and tragic day in our history. It was especially moving because we lived through this time and...More

The Sixth Floor Museum provides information from before the assassination and after, and plenty of background information. The actual display (the window through which shots were fired) was not particularly impressive, but more than compensated for by the displays.

A must see when in the Dallas area. Very moving and thought provoking. Buy tickets online and avoid waiting at the museum. Tickets can be purchased online when you arrive at the museum.

The museum is full if information, pictures, and video clips. It will give you chills. The only downfall us the weird layout. You may have to walk around other exhibits to find the next spot on the audio tour.

For $16 pp this museum is well worth the ticket price! An audio tour is included. The exhibits are interesting, so much so that we ended up spending 2 hours just on the Sixth Floor. There’s also a seventh floor where you can watch some...More

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
