|About these ratings|
On November 22, 1963, shots from Lee Harvey Oswald's gun echoed through Dealey Plaza as President John F. Kennedy's motorcade turned off of Houston Street onto Elm. This tragic day in United States history has been immortalized on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository -- where Oswald pulled the trigger almost 50 years ago -- in a moving tribute to JFK's life and legacy. According to many, one of the most fascinating exhibits is a recreation of Oswald's set-up at the southeast window. Round out your trip to the Sixth Floor Museum with a stroll around historic Dealey Plaza, located several blocks from the West End DART station.
The Sixth Floor Museum has a minimal admission fee and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Monday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Audio guides are available.
