Fascinating in a morbid way to go to the seat of the action so to speak, some very interesting displays, especially police exhibits and some of the video. Simple but historically fascinating.

I was born in 77, but the museum bought tears to my eyes. It's very moving! Downside...they don't allow pictures

If you're in the Dallas area this is a must see! The tour is put together very well and the museum will not leave you disappointed.

This was a great place to visit, and a page out of the history books. Listing to the information about the JFK killing was really interesting it was like bring it to life and seeing it happen. The tour is at the original place of the Texas School Book Depository Building. You pick up your listing device and follow along the path of JFK as his Presidency and his trip to Dallas. It’s a self-paced tour and probably about 2 hours is about how long it takes to see the whole thing and make sure you save a bit of time to walk the Grassy Knoll. Seeing where the shots were fired was also pretty incredible, kind of makes you think about a second shooter? Prices for the tour are as followed Adult — $16.00, Senior (Ages 65+) — $14.00, Youth (Ages 6-18) — $13.00 Children (Ages 0-5) — Free or $4.00 U.S. with audio guide. It was well worth the money for the tour there is nearby parking also.

As a 90's baby all I ever knew about JFK's assassination was through documentaries and books. This took it to a whole new level of information being in the same room where it all began really took me back and gave me the chills! But otherwise it was truly outstanding :)
