This spot felt like it dropped out of a time machine—it looks almost exactly like it does in most of the historical footage we’ve all seen so many times. The only problem we had was that it was a bit confusing to navigate because it’s...More

Either they have re-written history or I've mistakenly thought that cattlemen had settled Dallas. Very little emphasis on the cattle business but a very influential minority base. Live and re-Learn I guess.

Staff were very helpful and nice. The exhibit itself is just so powerful. It is thought provoking and very thorough. It was sobering to see all the footage, hear the actual broadcasts of what happened. You can not take pictures from the 6th floor where...More

Lots of history to see so plan on spending a whole day just visiting historical places. Some require tickets, some don't. But all within walking distance. On hot days bring Waters with you, cause you will need it.

We visited Dealy Plaza while in downtown Dallas. It looks just the same as in the McGruder video from 1963. It was cool being there but I found it to be a little sad since it is famous for the murder of the president.

It was kind of moving to stand there and remember the Zapruder film. There are 2 X’s in the street where the first and second bullet hit Kennedy. The location of the second gunman behind the grassy knoll still has what appears to be the...More

Purchase your tickets online and you will not have to stand in line. You can just show them your purchase on your phone and you will be good to go.

The 6th floor museum is a must see! Better get advanced reservations online. There is available parking at the museum for $10.
