The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
Dallas County Administration Building, 411 Elm St, Dallas, TX 75202
Learn all about JFK, his presidency, and his assassination where it all took place above the Dealey Plaza.
The Sixth Floor Museum is completely dedicated to John F. Kennedy's presidency and assassination that took place right outside on the Dealey Plaza. It is filled with fascinating information, artifacts, and a timeline of the events on that fateful day. Learn all about the Kennedy Family, the political climate during his time as president, and the major issues that the administration faced during his presidency. The museum, named after the corner window on their sixth floor where Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK, provides a unique and educational way to visit and view this historic site. I definitely think this is a good spot for older kids, especially if they have already learned about this a bit in school, to gain a new perspective and learn in an engaging way. Younger kids may be bored early on and not fully understand, especially since the museum takes about 90 minutes to fully get through. Tickets are $18 for adults, $14 for youth ages 6-18, and kids 5 and under get in for free. This museum is a great way to take a journey through time and bring a history lesson to life.
