Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

sixth floor museum at dealy plaza in dallas

Consistently named by travelers as a “must-see” destination, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the life, death, and legacy of President John F. Kennedy. The Museum is in the former Texas School Book Depository building, where evidence was found directly linking to the assassination of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Much of the exhibit space looks as it appeared in 1963.

Virtually unchanged from the 1963 warehouse appearance, the sixth floor’s immersive exhibit is a journey of the life and presidency of President Kennedy, the culture of the era, the reasons for his trip to Texas and insights into the facts and mystery surrounding his death. Learn how the world reacted to his death, how his history is now fading into memory, and yet his legacy remains relevant.

Admission includes an audio guide, available in eight languages including ASL.
