A must see when in Dallas. Was very interesting and sad. Didn't really touch on the hardships he made the Cuban people go through though.

Had been here many years ago and am glad I returned -- it's even better now! While it was very crowded this Saturday afternoon, it was manageable because the experience is self-paced. The headset your is well done. Highly recommended!

This was my third visit here but the first for my wife. It is an absorbing museum with a ton of information about both Kennedy and the times. It never gets old.

Great insight into America’s dark past doesn’t answer the questions on what really transpired on JFK’s assassination but worth the visit

Just try and get there early. The museum gets busy quickly. You can buy tickets online and they put you in a faster line.

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.
