Allow at least 2 hours to visit the museum and I would recommend getting the audio guide. There is so much information about JFK, the assassination and events after. It is quite surreal to be in the building and area of so much history.

This museum gives an overview of the Kennedy presidency, of course with a focus on the assassination. The audio tour is well done using pictures mostly to tell the story. There are very few actual artifacts at the museum (the museum is the major artifact)....More

It was a very informative tour of the School Book Depository. The headsets were great and the physical tour was very organized and thorough. An important part of history.

Very interesting and informative tour. Really puts you back in time and gives great detail about the culture and details of that era. I was not born when this took place, but I really enjoyed seeing the exhibits and the first hand accounts.

The tour was full of history, the culture of the '60's, video presentations, and forensic details. Some sections were quite crowded. My one complaint is that you had to go up stairs to access a restroom.

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
