Dedicated to JFK Tips (8)

Sixth Floor Museum

Favorite thing Interesting museum, filled with photos of JFK, videos and personal things. I didn't take audio tour, I think there are a lot of things to read on your own. I was excited to see the boxes that were there in the moment of assassination. Also it is worth to look on the stands with different theories who odered the assassination.

I would recommend stop and read on the first floor information about history of Dallas. Then in the hall there is information about trip to hospital and hospital procedures.

Near Museum some guys sell different newspapers and broshures. Tell you the truth I didn't look at them, but I guess it is worthless to buy anything from them. You choose.

By the way, when you take photos of the place of the assassination on the ground, be careful on the road because traffic there is pretty intense

John F. Kennedy Memorial

Favorite thing Dallas one of the most famous places known not only in US.

Fondest memory Tell you the truth, I was not impressed by this monument, too large and too squary. As the explanation says the memorial symbolizes the freedom of JFK's spirit. I guess I don't understand the art

Book Depository, Grassy Knoll,...

Favorite thing Book Depository, Grassy Knoll, it's all there. Go to the underpass and stick fingers in the bullet holes. Honest!

Fondest memory This is only a short page because there's not really a lot else to say. Bits of Texas looked nice. I would have liked to have gone to Big Bend National Park, but there's not much to recommend in Dallas. If you live there, sorry.

Visit the sixth floor, please...

Favorite thing Visit the sixth floor, please ignore my JFK re enactment as I drive by. I take the same route sometimes. Also check out Deep Ellum which used to be strictly for punks like me, now a tourist mecca full of upscale shops and a couple of self proclaimed dive bars among other more expensive velvet rope clubs.

Fondest memory The music scene is incredible! When living elsewhere, I miss seeing the Reverend Horton Heat (hometown hero) on a regular basis.

Sixth Street Museum....JFK

Favorite thing On November 22, 1963, John F. Kennedy was assasinated in Dallas, TX.

The Sixth Street 9,000 square-foot display is located in the former Texas School Book Depository has historical photographs, original interviews, artifacts, 40 minute documentary film. Included in the tour is the 'snipers perch' the corner window from which Lee Harvey Oswald is alleged to have fired upon the presidential motorcade.

Fondest memory I live in Dallas and work with Texans who were standing on Dealy plaza and witnessed the event.

I also have seen the convertible that he and Jacqeline Kennedy were in when he was shot.
