This is a wonderfully detailed museum only about the JFK assassination. The new exhibit is fine, but not too much more than you would normally get. The new exhibit does cause some waiting on weekends. So, get your tickets as soon as you get in...More

Audio and appointment is recommended as even 50 years after the event as this place gets crowded. You get the full story (facts and theories). You can get amazingly close to the controversial spot where the shots took place. Were preserved and maintained. You can...More

Defiantly the must do if in Dallas. The audio tour was fantastic and really set the scene for us, important as we have a 8 and 10 year olds who while knowing JFK was shot had no other understanding. The self paced tour takes you...More

The 6th Floor Museum/Texas School Book Depository is probably one of the heaviest visited sites in Dallas and can only take a certain number of people at a time. For this reason I would advise booking your trip in advance so that you can get...More

Because of its historical significance, expect a line. I went on a Thursday and packed. Upon entering its an organized maze. The audio tour with the headsets is recommended because of the amount of people walking around. Great for historians and conspiracy theorist, which they...More

I'm not sure about that - I have only ever parked my car in the lot next to the museum. I would call the museum directly & ask them where to park. 214-747-6660

The 30 minute time slots are for entry. Once you're in you can stay as long as you want. We were there at least 2 hours. There's a lot of reading and photos of the time to view. It's really worth the visit. Hope this answers... More
