John F Kennedy Assassination Tour with Sixth Floor Museum

61 reviews
We take you through the events of the day from a perspective not found on other tours. Why was JFK even in Dallas that day and why was that route for the motorcade chosen? We lay out the incredible coincidences and timing that culminated in a national tragedy that is as poignant today as it was in 1963.<br><br>We also tell the story of Jackie Kennedy's tremendous loss and her overwhelming grief. A story often overlooked. You've heard how she was stoic and poised in public, which she was, but we take you deeper into the private, human side of the story. You'll stand in disbelief as you hear these untold stories and wonder if you could have withstood the same public pressure if you were in her shoes. Not just the Assassination, but other, equally devastating life experiences.<br><br>We end the tour at the Sixth Floor Museum. There you can continue with a self guided tour equipped with headsets. We will help you buy tickets, give an overview of the Museum and help you with a speedy entrance.

Due to COVID they have limited tickets and they are timed. However, it was so crowded that we literally shuffled from exhibit to exhibit. It's really more of a rain forest museum than an aquarium though. It was still nice, but not what I expected and the crowds made it hard to enjoy anything.

It was way bigger inside than I thought it would be. Many different floors and levels to the place, lots of animals. I only give 4/5 because the actual aquarium part of the exhibit isn’t until the end and it’s the smallest part of the whole “Dallas world aquarium”

The aquarium has a very unique set up and way to guide yourself through. Starting at the rainforest and seeing monkeys, lots of birds and reptiles; you work your way down levels to see more sea life as you get further in. Overall good aquarium. Having visited so many aquariums and being a scuba diver I would prefer to see bigger tanks for some of the animals. The spotted mantas area is very small. An increased variety of sharks would have also been nice. The country setup with corresponding fish and sea life was very nicely done.

Not much to see, gift shops don't have that much merchandise and as expected most of the stand were closed (due to COVID).
