Very interesting and informative tour. Really puts you back in time and gives great detail about the culture and details of that era. I was not born when this took place, but I really enjoyed seeing the exhibits and the first hand accounts.

The tour was full of history, the culture of the '60's, video presentations, and forensic details. Some sections were quite crowded. My one complaint is that you had to go up stairs to access a restroom.

This is a self guided audio tour through a museum on the sixth floor of the book depository building from where Oswald shot Kennedy. Lots of interesting information culturally, politically and historically. Taking our time, we were there 2 1/2 hours.

Was not sure what i would make of this museum but I ended up fascinated about the whole thing. Really liked that they went in to all the other conspiracies. We ended up spending nearly three hours in there as the time flew by.

Being from Boston, this was a must-see stop while in Dallas on business. What was heartening is that there were people from all over the country, if not the world, who were there when I visited. The memory of JFK is etched in my mind...More

The 30 minute time slots are for entry. Once you're in you can stay as long as you want. We were there at least 2 hours. There's a lot of reading and photos of the time to view. It's really worth the visit. Hope this answers... More
