Owner description: One of Texas’ most visited historic sites, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. The Museum is in the former Texas School Book Depository building, where evidence of a sniper was found after the assassination of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Much of the exhibit space looks as it appeared in the 1960s. Highlights include a sniper’s perch, the FBI model used by the Warren Commission, an original teletype machine that first transmitted news of the president’s death, Oswald’s wedding ring, historic films, photos and more. An interactive display overlooks Dealey Plaza. Admission includes an audio guide, available in eight languages including ASL. The museum is open daily in 2018 except Christmas. Timed tickets can be purchased in advance at jfk.org.

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.

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

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.
