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.

The atmosphere here will be great whenever there is an event, there will be a lot of food and beer stalls, and the service is very fast.
