One-Hour John F Kennedy Assassination Tour with Sixth Floor Museum

64 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.

We were first provided an orientation that described the venue and artifacts on display. There's a lot of history here, which will take more than one visit to fully enjoy. We recommend that you eat before you make your visit.

Located in Fair Park this museum was a pleasant visit for the rainy day. The Kinsey Collection and other historic exhibits were excellent. It’s a spacious museum so you can stroll at your leisure. We went with families with teens and little ones and they were fine. The museum is small enough for teens to roam on own. The colors is the exhibit are vibrant and well appointed. Great museum in Dallas. Note there is $10 adult fee students $5 to see exhibits. Highly recommend.

As part of the Texas State Fair (Sept 27 - October 20, 2019) The African American Museum is hosting a special exhibit called "Kinsey African American Art & History Collection". It is a fascinating exhibition that encompasses 3 room with sculptures, paintings, and artifacts tracing African Americans from 1500s to today. Lots to learn about accomplishments in spite of or despite slavery or civil rights denials. As part of a resident exhibition, one can learn about the Freedman's Cemetery and life of area residents. The interior of the building is worth a visit in itself. It is beautiful and not at all like the outside edifice. The building is very near Entrance Gate 5 to Fair Park.

The museum is huge. I only got through a very small portion of it; the music section. It was really neat to look at the videos, exhibits and read about old and new performers. There are 4 floors broken up by African American slavery, Civil Rights Movement, the museum store, sports and the top floor explores music. I would estimate it takes a solid 4-5 hours to see everything. The museum is open from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. every day of the year except for Christmas Day, December 25. Admissions is free although you will need to print out a ticket. An eye opening and educational experience.
