This is a great dedication to the events of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Very well presented and preserved, I highly recommend the audio tour as it gives you more of a detailed interpretation that what the notes on the wall give. The events of...More

The museum was excellent. After years of reading so much about the tragic events in Dallas, it was an excellent experience to see everything first hand.

Booked for a business meeting. Various meals ordered, all meals were cooked to perfection, waiting staff knew their wines and could explain how the food was prepared. Service was perfect. My only criticism would be the inability to pay with my New Zealand card and...More

Great museum. You get a feeling for what it must have been like to be there at the time of Kennedy's assignation. Also makes you think about conspiracy theories and if they are true. If you like history go check it out.

Sadly the city has become as well-known for the assassination of JFK as for its virtues. But this museum does a masterful job of telling the story of 11-22-63. Plan for at least an hour and learn or be reminded of one of the nation's...More

Which Airport? Love field is closer and easier to get in and out of. DFW is not as close and a bit harder to make a trip to and from. I would suggest to try the WAZE application. Rush Hour in Dallas can make a world of... More
