    Watch every film and don't miss the Jack Ruby exhibit on the 7th floor

    The lady at the front counter will call you "sugar" at the end of every sentence! Beware!

    Very emotional. Still moves people to tears, even those of us who weren't born yet. What a great museum. Definitely a must when in Dallas.

    Notice the shooting location in the corner. It is boxed in by glass walls. Muse on whether it would really be all that bad to let people step up to the actual shooting location to verify trajectories.

  • Charles H.

    Worth every dollar. Definately a must see in Dallas. You will be moved.

    Turn off the audio at each stage & take your own time to really read and take in the exhibits. You don't have to move at the pace the audio sets. Read more

    Definitely do the audio tour at the Sixth Floor Museum since it's included in the price if admission.

    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.

    Stand near the window and ask why. Why not before the turn. Why after the turn when the car is behind trees, picking up speed, moving away. Makes no sense in so many ways.

    Photog Peter Stawicki · July 7, 2011
  • Tracy H.

    Very well done. I did the 6th floor tour and then went down to the street.

    The death of a president, the discovery of a sniper’s nest and a generation of speculation, the Museum untangles reality from myth. But it’s the eyewitness voices from the past that linger on.

  • Tasha P.

    Make sure both ears work on your head set! quite annoying if they don't.

    Convinced of conspiracy now more than ever. Snipers practice simultaneous shooting at moving targets, and the Courthouse and DalTex buildings would have been perfect. Where's Jackie's pea coat? ;)

    Formerly the Texas School Book Depository, this museum explores and celebrates the life of President Kennedy. #seemoresights

    The audio is helpful, but turn it off at each panel and pace yourself.

    Awesome museum - lots to learn!

    This place was an absolute amazing step into history.

    A fitting and deeply moving tribute to the legacy of President Kennedy. The museum covers the life of JFK and his untimely passing in rich detail. Definitely a place to visit in Dallas.

    Don't come on Saturday afternoon. Line is ridiculous. Too late?

    Justin Jones · March 23, 2013
  • Zola C.

    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.

    The site of JFK's murder is marked by an X outside the 6th Floor Museum. While a little touristy, it's a top spot to get your conspiracy theory on.

  • Jia X.

    a great place to learn the history of JFK

    If you take the brochure "where maps" available at the very entrance of this museum free of charge inside you will find a coupon for a discounted price cover fee

    Jonathan Acevedo · February 22, 2014

    The 50 year anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. It is an eerie feeling being here.

    Social News Network · December 2, 2013
  • Uba O.

    One of the best places to visit in Dallas

    Uba Okereke · November 19, 2013
  • Catherine C.

    Parking is scarce & pricey; it's easy to ride DART light rail to West End station.

    Catherine Cuellar · September 12, 2013
  • Tim

    Well worth a visit to get a real impression of what happened. Make sure you see the window the shots were fired from.

    Tim · June 9, 2013
  • Jessica G.

    A must see for those who love learning about the stories behind our presidents. Or anyone in Texas, really. Impactful.

    Jessica Gibson · May 22, 2013
  • Debbie C.

    A must see when visiting dallas

    Debbie Cunningham · April 30, 2013
  • Mallory

    It is speculated the bullet which killed JFK was fired in this building by Lee Harvey Oswald

    Mallory · March 17, 2013
  • Jackie K.

    Go to the 7th floor and go to the window above the one oswald used to get his perspective of the shooting.

    Jackie K · March 4, 2013
  • Angela

    Go to the old red museum visitors center and pick up a coupon book. They have a $2 off admission to the Sixth Floor museum

    Very emotional. Still moves people to tears, even those of us who weren't born yet. What a great museum. Definitely a must when in Dallas.

    The cashier: "It's not just a window."

  • Ayaz H.

    Get your picture taken on the "X" on the street. Gift Shop has this great "group photo" of all 44 Presidents. Buy it.

    Ayaz Hyder · November 18, 2011
  • Susan S.

    Skip the film in the small theater area.

    Susan Scrupski · August 20, 2011
