I was really expecting the museum to just cover the assassination and was blown away by the depth of the exhibit. It covered so much more, and was exciting and informative. I consider myself somewhat of a history buff when it comes to the Kennedy's...More

Having wanted to visit the scene and museum for the last 20 years I was not disappointed. The JFK story is told from end to end via an audio tour with many info panels and TV recordings to view. The most recent very graphic videos...More

Great to see how they work op to the fatal moment painting the whole socioeconomic and political background of those times. Also enough room for the “alternative” theories about that day

This was an interesting museum- you must do it with audio though. At times some displays were hard to see so you need to be patient in order to get close . It wasn't bad but you do need to get close to fully appreciate...More

Spent 3 hours touring the 6th floor museum! Each visitor gets their own audio headphones and device to listen to a tour that describes 40 different displays. These consisted of photographs, video, and artifacts. It proceeds in chronological order and the focus is on President...More

Reasonably priced and good display. If you are familiar with the story there is nothing new in the display. Opportunity to see the alleged snipers nest on the 6th floor although you can't stand at the window or take pictures. Probably a bit of a...More

The sixth floor museum and Texas school book depository does timed tours. I suggest if you know exactly what date and time you plan to visit, pre-purchase your tickets online. I visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was quite busy. While waiting in line...More

The Sixth Floor Museum is a must-see in Dallas. The museum takes about 2-3 hours to walk through completely, and it's not the most kid-friendly. High school/college/adults would really benefit from the information provided. A fun tip is to talk to the many conspiracy theorists...More

No, just one ticket per person. Entrance to the museum are in groups of 30 mins time slot. E.g 10:30, 11:00 slots. Once you get in (to the 6th floor, which is the musuem floor) you'll probably end up spending 1-2 hours there... More
