Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza Tours

Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
John F. Kennedy’s presidency, ending with his assassination in Dallas, profoundly shaped American history. Explore his legacy at the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas. Filled with insightful exhibits that celebrate JFK’s personal and political life, you’ll come away with a deeper understanding of this notable American president.

The Basics
The Sixth Floor Museum is at the site of the Texas Book Depository, where Lee Harvey Oswald shot the president in 1963. A rifle and sniper’s perch were later found here, on the sixth floor. Though the museum commemorates a grim occasion in American history, it does so respectfully and in a way that enriches visitors’ appreciation and understanding of Kennedy and his life.

Admission, which is covered by the Dallas CityPASS, includes an audio tour that allows you to explore the fascinating timeline of JFK’s life—detailed through various exhibits, personal family photos, documentaries, and interactive displays—on your own. History buffs can take a private guided tour that focuses on JFK’s assassination, and includes museum admission and round-trip transportation.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is a must for history and JFK enthusiasts.
  • Buying skip-the-line tickets in advance is highly recommended, as the wait at entry can be quite long.
  • Discounted admission is available for seniors and those under age 18.
  • Photography is prohibited.
  • Due to the somber subject matter, the museum is not recommended for children under age 6.
  • The entire museum is accessible to wheelchair users and those with special needs.
 
How to Get There
The museum is located at 411 Elm Street in downtown Dallas, easily accessible by major highways. It’s also a short walk from public transit: three blocks from West End Station and five blocks from Union Station. If driving, there is paid on-site parking.

When to Get There
The Sixth Floor Museum is open from 10am to 6pm Tuesday through Sunday, and from 12pm to 6pm on Monday. For a more contemplative experience, try to visit early in the day on a weekday, rather than on weekends or holidays.

Exhibits of Note
The Sixth Floor Museum provides historical context for the events of, and after, JFK’s assassination in 1963. There are historical images, news footage, artifacts, and more. Among the museum’s more unusual items is Lee Harvey Oswald’s 14-karat gold Russian wedding ring, which he left behind at home in a teacup on the morning of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
Address: 411 Elm Street, Dallas TX 75202, USA

John F Kennedy Assassination Tour ending at Sixth Floor MuseumPrivate and Luxury

John F Kennedy Assassination Tour ending at Sixth Floor Museum

star-5
We take you through the events of the day from a perspective not found on other tours. Why was JFK even in Dallas that day and why was that route for the motorcade chosen? We lay out the incredible coincidences and timing that culminated in a national tragedy that is as poignant today as it was in 1963. We also tell the story of Jackie Kennedy's tremendous loss and her overwhelming grief. A story often overlooked. You've heard how she was stoic and poised in public, which she was, but we take you deeper into the private, human side of the story. You'll stand in disbelief as you hear these untold stories and wonder if you could have withstood the same public pressure if you were in her shoes. Not just the Assassination, but other, equally devastating life experiences. We end the tour at the Sixth Floor Museum. There you can continue with a self guided tour equipped with headsets. We will help you buy tickets, give an overview of the Museum and help you with a speedy entrance.
