“Very Surreal to Visit, But Still Cool”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Go to the museum, then go walk around the plaza. It makes it so much cooler and is a real immersive experience. Try not to get hit by a car while trying to take pictures on the shots-fired-Xs painted in the street.

“Listen”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

There are many tour guides available and there were a few school groups when we visited. We listened to a couple tours and just tipped the tour guide for letting us lisen in.

“Historic”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

Sad but historic. If you are into history as much as I am this is a great place to visit. I also have an interest in JFK so that made this an even more must see for me.

“Moving and Educational”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Visiting the site of President John F. Kennedy's assassination over fifty years ago provides an opportunity to quietly reflect on developments in our country's history since that fateful event. For out-of-town visitors, the Old Red Museum, housed across the street in the former Dallas Courthouse, contains an excellent panoramic exhibit on the city's history. They even have on display J.R. Ewing's Stetson hat from the TV show "Dallas"!
