The memorial is a bit controversial. In my opinion does not reflect what JFK was for the USA and the world. Probably you will be visiting the area, in that case take a couple of minutes in order to get your own opinion.

Very simple construction inside and outside. Need not more than 1/2 hour. Plenty of parking around. Open space

I was speechless walking through this memorial. I've seen it hundreds of times in pictures, video, film, but it's something else altogether walking the actual path and seeing the grassy knoll. Must see while in Dallas...it's an important part of our American History.

Very simple, understated memorial, non-pretentious, easily handicap accessible. Simple black stone engraved with JFK's name in middle of this simple white exterior walls.

An unbelievably terrible memorial and I’m clearly missing something - or perhaps the architect was. A meaningless memorial and not even in a good state of repair

If a history buff and remember JFK this is a must see memorial to his death in Dallas in November, 1963.

I was asked by a group of young ladys where was JFK shot, I pointed towards the location and told them it is one block down. Whatever directions they were following led them to the memorial. There are a few other memorials within eyesight of...More
