The Sixth Floor Museum is at the site of the Texas Book Depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald shot the president in 1963. A rifle and sniper’s perch were later found here, on the sixth floor. Though the museum commemorates a grim occasion in American history, it does so respectfully and in a way that enriches visitors’ appreciation and understanding of Kennedy and his life.
Admission, which is covered by the Dallas CityPASS, includes an audio tour that allows you to explore the fascinating timeline of JFK’s life—detailed through various exhibits, personal family photos, documentaries, and interactive displays—on your own. History buffs can take a private guided tour that focuses on JFK’s assassination, and includes museum admission and round-trip transportation.
