Visit the Sixth Floor Museum and see what was happening in the days and weeks leading up to Kennedy's visit to Dallas in November 1963. Any trip to Dallas Texas should include a visit to the Sixth Floor Museum.

Very interesting with tons of memorabilia and details. Definitely worth the time and money. If you're a history buff, you'll love it.

We visited during the US Labor Day weekend so it was very busy, luckily we had pre-purchased tickets ahead of time for the afternoon session. The museum was very respectful of the Kennedy family in depicting the information, staff were friendly and organised and the...More

A presidential assassination is admittedly the bombshell news of the day, maybe the decade. But the Kennedy shooting happened more than a half century ago. And yet… the controversy rages on. If you don’t think so, just Tweet: “I don’t believe in a conspiracy,” and...More

Although we walked the plaza, we did not stop at this time in the Museum while in Dallas. We have previously taken our children to the sixth floor museum. We highly recommend the experience.

I have visited the 6th Floor Museum sever times over the years. It is a very worthwhile stop if you like history. There is much to learn on the Kennedy assassination and they have the facts. The audio tour was hard to follow for me,...More

This was a very good museum crammed into too small of a place with too many people. We went on a Saturday morning. They have a timed entrance, so they only let a certain number of people in, but it was WAY too many. They...More

When in Dallas of course you have to go to the place where JFK was killed. It’s history. The museum is well organized and explains really well what happened. I just didn’t like the confusion to get tickets and be in the line to go...More

The exposition is good, but maybe too much side information. The most interesting part is the whole investigation about the assassination, which covers, maybe, 20% of the exposition.

There is a paid parking lot at the end of the block. You will see it. Also from here you can walk to Reunion Tower.

The Museum sells timed-entry tickets to help manage traffic flow. You can arrive at any time within that 30-minute window, but when the Museum is busy, you most likely will have a wait before you can proceed upstairs.
