    Really nice, very clean, and upper-end in terms of service. The food was unsurprisingly good and the drinks were hand-made. The view from the inside is nice because of the large windows that look into an historic area of the west end. Lots of room to sit inside, including big comfy couches. Felt like it's been there for a hundred ...

    The Sixth Floor Museum

    0.32 mi from Dallas World Aquarium
    29 reviews

    The Sixth Floor Musuem in the old Texas Book Depository is a very nice museum, partly because they ask people not to take photos, whether out of respect for its topic or just as a courtesy to the other people. Oswald's sniper's nest is preserved and you can look down onto Dealey Plaza.

    The venue is a great location to watch the Dallas Mavericks NBA team or Dallas Stars NHL teams. They also regularly host concerts, circus and other special events. The food taste and price options inside are typical of a large venue. Just outside of the venue are a handful of restaurants and bars.

    This museum, set to be free the beginning of 2013, houses a variety of pieces from different places and eras. I managed to see the Tutankhamen exhibit when it was traveling through, which was quite good.

    Great for lovers of the 3D, nice variety from Rodin to contemporary sculptors. Better to go on a sunny day since much of the collection is outdoors.

    Klyde Warren Park is a relatively recent park. Located in downtown and within walking distance from museums, the opera house and a few hotels, I highly recommend it to get a feel of what Dallas is about.

    The Nasher is all about the sculptures. If you are not typically a fan of sculpture, give it a shot anyway. I think you'll be surprised by it's beauty and depth. Behind the building is a large grassy area devoted to outdoor sculpture and a peaceful water garden. It's a wonderful green oasis set in the middle of Big D. ...

    Dealey Plaza was made famous as the assassination site of JFK. There's a monument there, and an x in the street to mark the spot where he was shot. Conspiracy theorists gather on the grassy knoll. There's a museum to the event in the Book Depository.
