What people are saying:

It was a bookstore on November 22, 1963, and the shooter who killed JFK was on the 6th floor. It is now converted into a museum, the window where the gunmen opened fire was restored and then separated by a glass wall, the rest of the place is a lot of photos, videos, newspapers, etc of the time, and the American society of the 1960s (Bob Dylan's record and Tiffany's breakfast poster, etc.), the election and policies of JFK, the situation before JFK's visit, the sightings of the incident, the arrest and bizarre murder of the gunman, the impact of the incident, etc. The audio guide is very good, buy tickets, send one per person, and even have Chinese, it is recommended to have time and interested in history friends listen carefully. The American tourists here are very serious, many elderly people are very touched, after all, JFK and Jackie are very popular with Americans, from the 7th floor of the museum, the trees are not yet lush so the killer has a better view, the middle of the road is the location of JFK shot, X is also used as a mark on the ground.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Sixth Floor Museum, located in the heart of Dallas, was built to commemorate the assassination of former US President Kennedy. The reason why it is called "the sixth floor" is because the three bullets of the killer Lee Harvey Oswald were shot from the sixth floor of the building that used to be the textbook warehouse. The bullets hit Kennedy's back and ended his short and legendary life.
