    Grassy knoll with book depository

    A real moment in history took place from this building although the possibility of a second shooter from the "grassy knoll" has still not been excluded. The museum has numerous films running of the Kennedys arriving in Texas. Currently on display nearby is an original corner window, which was removed soon after the assassination for protective purposes. Views from the sixth floor onto Dealey Plaza and the motorcade route speak volumes about the events of November 22, 1963. All south-facing windows are available for viewing, with informative graphics interpreting the area below. A truely fascinating exhibition of a day which changed history

    Morbid but interesting

    The Sixth Floor Museum and the surrounding Dealy Plaza area seemed to me like the most fascinating thing to do in Dallas. And it was indeed interesting to see the inside of the space where JFK may or may not have been assassinated from.

    And the gift shop had a interesting assortment of morbid gifts.

    The Sixht Floor Museum

    This museum commemorates the life and death of John F. Kennedy. The museum is located on the Sixht Floor of the old Texas School Book Depository Building by Dealey Plaza. The corner window of this sixth floor is where it is believed that the sniper that assassinated JFK was situated.

    The museum does a great job in building the story around JFK, from family to politics, and outlining the events leading up to the assassination. The corner from which he was shoot is set up the way it was orginally found; and you can look out the windows next to it to get the view that the sniper had of the president. The museum also holds an FBI reconstruction of the Plaza looking excactly as it did at the time of the shooting. This place is most definitly worth a visit!

    This museum on the sixth floor of the old Dallas Book Depository, is the infamous site from which Lee Harvey Oswald is believed to have fired the shots that killed JFK.
