Although the building itself isn't that impressive, the tour through it, giving firstly details of Kennedy's presidency as well as the world he lived in and after that a timeline from the moment of his assassination through what happened after the fatal shot was fired is really something that hits you hard. Take the time to read the text next to the pictures and also be sure to watch te movies for the total experience. The sniper hole where Oswald sat when he took his shot at JFK is reconstructed and through the window next to this, you can almost have the exact view het had when he lined up for the shot. Creepy......The Audio Tour is also a must, excellent narration from reporters who where there when it happened!

President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas, USA. The Sixth Floor Museum provides you with all of the details of Kennedy's assassination. For $16, you can take a guided tour of the building where Lee Harvey Oswalt shot JFK at. There are a number of different conspiracies as to what actually happened but the most popular belief is that Oswalt shot JFK from this building (pictured) from the sixth floor, far right window. Whatever conspiracy you believe or walk away with, we can all agree that this single event did change America. I highly recommend this tour as its an interesting part of American history.

Despite the city’s breakneck forward motion, one thing Dallas can probably never leave behind is the legacy of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. History buffs head to the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, formerly the Texas School Book Depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald is presumed to have fired the fatal shots. The area where Oswald allegedly stood is now encased in glass, but one can still pore over documents, photographs, and video or take a less scientific approach by soaking up the wild opinions from the conspiracy theorists who hang around outside museum doors. This year’s 49th anniversary of President Kennedy’s death lands on Thanksgiving, and the museum will keep its doors open in observation.

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.

Photographs, videos and newspaper clippings are the highlight. Audio options include English, Spanish, German, French, Italian and Japanese. From the 6th floor window (last window on the right), stand where Oswald fired the shots that changed the history of the world in one split second! X's on Elm Stree mark the two spots where the shots hit the president and Governor Connolly of Texas. Open daily (except Monday) from 10:00 AM - 6:00 pm (last ticket sold at 5:00 pm); Monday, from noon until 6:00 pm. Tickets: $13.50 per adult. Discounts for seniors, students and children.

One of the saddest places I've ever visited. The former Texas Book Depository Building right on Dealey Plaza. President John F. Kennedy was in his motorcade coming around the bend on Dealey Plaza when shots rang out from this building and President Kennedy was killed.

WOW!!! What an amazing place of history. My family just loved it here. My grandsons love history, so to be where JFK was killed was a sobering eye-opener. Loved it. We were there on the anniversary of his death. A news team were there and interviewed my son-in-law and grandson who was around 9 at the time. He just loved being interview. Quiet an experience for him.

The Sixth Floor Museum is one of Dallas' most infamous historical accounts. Sadly President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. The old School Book Depository (now the Sixth Floor Museum) is where Lee Harvey Oswald worked at that time. President Kennedy was shot from a window on the sixth floor. For those conspiracy theorists out there... go check out the grassy knoll outside. It is a historical and somber museum, but it's something everyone should see. In the gift shop you can buy reprinted local newspapers from the days that followed the assassination. It gives you an excellent perspective into what state of mind the country was in at that time.
