Reasonably priced and good display. If you are familiar with the story there is nothing new in the display. Opportunity to see the alleged snipers nest on the 6th floor although you can't stand at the window or take pictures. Probably a bit of a...More

Everyone remembers where they were when JFK was shot...but to visit this and experience the museum was a great lesson to remember. Exhibits are well done AND I loved the self guided headphones

The sixth floor museum and Texas school book depository does timed tours. I suggest if you know exactly what date and time you plan to visit, pre-purchase your tickets online. I visited on a Saturday afternoon and it was quite busy. While waiting in line...More

The Sixth Floor Museum is a must-see in Dallas. The museum takes about 2-3 hours to walk through completely, and it's not the most kid-friendly. High school/college/adults would really benefit from the information provided. A fun tip is to talk to the many conspiracy theorists...More

This really is an interesting piece of history that is worth visiting if you are in the area. Our kids enjoyed it.

This museum details the presidency of JFK from the start to his assassination. It explores all of the evidence and all of the conspiracy theories. You can actually stand 3 feet away from the window where the shots were fired and see an interactive video...More

Draws a large crowd so get your tickets ahead of going to the museum. Also plan to spend at least two hours. Very informative and self guided tour is a bonus. Easy access to public transportation was a plus.

The museum takes you through the history of JFK and the events of the day of the death in a very respectful manner. Worth a visit.

This is American history about what happened when president Kennedy was killed. It is worth the time and fee. Very well done.

This is a MUST for none visiting Dallas- on business or pleasure. Really well organised,informative and full of authentic artefacts which enhance the experience. The view from the window is thought provoking. Well worth a visit. - perhaps book on line ahead to save queuing...More

No, just one ticket per person. Entrance to the museum are in groups of 30 mins time slot. E.g 10:30, 11:00 slots. Once you get in (to the 6th floor, which is the musuem floor) you'll probably end up spending 1-2 hours there... More
