so excited to see this, and it's the genuine article, except that the layout of the exhibition is insanely confusing, sound track of headphones guide is off the track, and the exhibition flows really badly. it just needs to be sorted out, otherwise fantastic.

The audio guide is definitely worth using when walking around the museum. It offers additional information and insights to the information displayed on the walls.

This was a good exhibit if you are interested in Kennedy's assassination. Best to order tickets online as the line to buy tickets moves fairly slowly. Downside of the exhibit is certain areas can become very crowded and the audio guide doesn't let you switch...More

Most people recall where they were when the sad news came that our President JFK was assassinated. This was my chance to see and feel what transpired. Very informative and thought provoking.

Sad to visit because it truly tells of such a sad day in American history, but needs to be seen and heard

Having wanted to visit the scene and museum for the last 20 years I was not disappointed. The JFK story is told from end to end via an audio tour with many info panels and TV recordings to view. The most recent very graphic videos...More

Great to see how they work op to the fatal moment painting the whole socioeconomic and political background of those times. Also enough room for the “alternative” theories about that day

No, just one ticket per person. Entrance to the museum are in groups of 30 mins time slot. E.g 10:30, 11:00 slots. Once you get in (to the 6th floor, which is the musuem floor) you'll probably end up spending 1-2 hours there... More
