“Fun to visit in Dallas”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Driving up to the book depository and seeing just where President Kennedy was shot really makes an impact. From the Grassy Knoll to the view out the window up Elm and Down Houston street was interesting to ponder the idea of a separate shooter from the knoll. The monuments erected after the shooting seem odd from their visual appeal to their locations it's not what I thought a monument to President Kennedy would look like and does not compare the monuments erected in Washington DC for former presidents. Not sure what I expected but this is not it.

“Loved the 6th Floor Museum”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

I love history and the museum is very well done. I loved all the old photos. It takes you back in time. The hand-held remote tour is worth the money as it walks you through the displays without your having to read everyting

“Great for History Buffs”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

Interesting videos and pictures give you a real sense of the times and events of that day. Sobering...to think about being that close to where our President was shot and how people must have felt who were there that day.
