    About a two hour visit. Buy tickets in advance so you don't have to wait in line. Really well done with lots of detail bit in a digestible format.
  • Constantin
    I am sure that many if you are quite familiar with the whole story. If you are in Dallas make sure you visit the place where JFK was killed and the museum. You will get a new, different feeling...

    Fun and educational-- lots to learn about Kennedy and his assassination. The audio guide was a bit cumbersome.

    A nice and very informative museum, make sure you take you time and use the audio guide and see the film to get a better idea of what happened

    Warning this is a lot longer than anticipated. With the audio it takes 90 minutes! It's great though

    This JFK assassination museum is really well done. The audio guide is very well integrated with displays. And you get to look out across Dealey Plaza from a 6th floor window. Go early to beat queues.

    A interactive walkthrough leading up to and after the death of JFK. Do the audio tour more intense. Second by second of JFK assassination. The conspiracy behind it. The position of the alleged shooter

    Great exhibits on the 6th and 7th floor; learn more about JFK and his relationship with the city of Dallas. There is a very comfortable rocking chair in the gift shop.

    There are two floors that can be visited: the 6th (audio-guided tour) & the 7th (some exhibitions). From the 7th floor, you'll be able to take a photo of the spot where JFK was shot (see the pic).

    Such an overwhelming place but in a good way. It's a must do! Graphic, emotional and just inspirational of who JFK was.

    Not impressed. Any 4th grader could make these exhibits. Cannot recommend this to anyone. Overpriced as well.

    Incredible exhibit! I enjoyed reading the displays much more than doing the audio tour. Buy tickets at a reserved time across the street in the museum store.

    One of the first things you notice is how close this is to the highway. Whoever was involved could've jumped on the highway for an easy getaway.

    Wait for red light. Go stand at the "X" and look back at the 6th floor window.

    Go up one floor to the 7th floor or take a couple of steps to right from the alleged sniper's nest. Set the conspiracy theorist within free and figure out your theory.

    These people really love to enforce a "no photography whatsoever on the 6th floor" policy.Which of course is bullshit so ignored it completely and snapped all the photos I wanted. I advise u 2 do also

    A must see when you are in Dallas, haunting. If you get the chance, talk to the man outside by the grassy knoll. He was a witness at age 13 when Kennedy was shot.

  • CJ W.
    CJ WallingtonJanuary 26, 2014
    Did Governor Connally's body block line of sight on Houston Street before the turn onto Elm? Would Oswald have had to stand or lean out to shoot down? or was he just not ready? Elm St is easier.

    If your ticket is 12:30pm, get into the queue around 12:20pm even if that's the 12:00pm queue. Otherwise, the queue will be longer at 12:30pm.

    Kind of a bummer that you can't take any pictures on the sixth floor but they don't tell you that until after you've bought your tickets. And the "sugar" lady still works there and called me Sugar.

    Be prepared to spend about 3 hours going through the exhibits. So you should try to arrive by 3 pm at the latest. And don't forget to check out the seventh floor exhibits before you leave.

    Don't bring a handgun since it's prohibited based on the sign on the door. Also because it's insane to carry a handgun.
