The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
One of Texas’s most visited historic sites, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza explores the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. The museum is in the former Texas School Book Depository, where evidence linked to President Kennedy’s assassination on November 22, 1963 was found. Much of the exhibit space looks as it appeared in the 1960s. Exhibit highlights include a sniper’s perch precisely re-created from crime scene photos, the FBI model used in the Warren Commission’s investigation, the original teletype machine that first transmitted news of the president’s death, alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s wedding ring, and cameras used by reporters to record the presidential motorcade. An interactive display overlooks Dealey Plaza, while numerous historic films and photos transport visitors back in time to November 1963. An audio guide, included with admission, is available in eight languages including ASL. The museum begins with the social and political culture of the 1960s and culminates with President Kennedy’s ongoing legacy. Memory books invite visitors to record their personal thoughts. A must-see destination for travelers, The Sixth Floor Museum welcomes more than 400,000 visitors from around the world each year. Purchasing timed tickets in advance is recommended; buy tickets online at jfk.org.
