    The Sixth Floor is a museum/memorial about John F. Kennedy.
    You can learn about his life and presidency there. In one corner the room is walled off with glass. It is exactly how it looked when Lee Harvey Oswald was there to kill president Kennedy. The Sixth Floor is the former book depository. I thought it interesting to look out the windows down on to the plaza. I had heard much controversy about the possibility of an assassin not being able to fire from this building accurately.

    The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is where you'll find out about President Kennedy, his life and his death. The museum is remarkably well presented and you can easily follow the Kennedy story from his early days until the fateful moment on 22 November 1963. Watch the famous cinefilm of the assassination on a continuous loop, read about Oswald and Ruby, stand at the spot from where Oswald is alleged to have fired. Take away your ideas and wonder: loner or conspiracy?

    Visit a Kennedy Memorial.

    Kennedy was the first American president, who was killed publicly. This murder is still a mystery, there's no a certain knowledge of who and why killed John Fitzgerald Kennedy, but this murder was translated by TV for millions of Americans. This memorial reminds people about that day, and about that president.

    The museum chronicles JFK's life and career. View various conspiracy theories. This is the actual Book Depository where they say kenedy was shot from.

    Dealey Plaza is the site of the Kennedy assassination. An 'X' on the road marks where the President was shot and a plaque was placed beside the footpath.

    John F. Kennedy Memorial - is a memorial to the late president. It is simple and stark and was designed by Kennedy family friend - Philip Johnson.

    This is obviously the site of assasination of President Kennedy. There is a museum in the building from which the shots allegedly came and a memorial.

    This is a special memorial for JFK on the 40th Anniversary.

    If you enlarge this picture, you can see John boy, his son. What a memory it was to see him salute his father in the funeral procession.

    Sombering place with unanswered questions. The conspiracy theories receive much attention, though visit the museum (located on the sixth floor) to learn more about JFK's legacy.

    November 22, 1963 was the date that JFK was assasinated. I went to Dealy Plaza many times, but this year I decided to go for the 40th Anniversary.

    The Texas Book Depository - where Lee Harvey Oswald may have fired the shot that may have killed John F. Kennedy.

    The Texas Bookstore Depository - JFK museum. This is the
    location from where President Kennedy was shot. The museum is very informative.
