I was not really interested in it at the first time. After I spent 2 to 3 hours in the museum, I found it very fascinating. They provide both the backgrounds from history and some evidences from investigation, so we can see the whole picture...More

We visited the Sixth Floor Museum on our trip to Dallas. The museum was informative and provided audio tours which provided additional information about the exhibits. Very worthwhile.

When in Dallas, this is a must see! Do the 90 minutes self guided tour. Well worth this history lesson! Gift shop was a bit pricey, but that was expected.

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
