Everything you need to know about the JFK assassination- They provide you with a audio self-guide tour. Includes videos and displays. I am a retired US history teacher and I was impressed with the information provided throughout the museum.

I enjoyed the museum. It had a lot of info and since it was a self guided audio tour, you can go at your own pace and really dive into it all. My only complaint is that you have to reserve a time, and I...More

This museum is excellent. Everyone is given an audio tour but you do not have to use it. By providing the audio option, the museum is quiet and visitors move along at a comfortable pace. We were able to listen while we read the displays....More

You can save time by buying your tickets online. Plan on spending 90 minutes to 2 hours at the museum to see everything. Your ticket will have an admission time, and it will almost certainly be crowded whenever you go, so remember your ticket time...More

Only negative, but a big one, is that they allow too many people through at one time so trying to see everything can be a challenge. Order tix online and bypass the long line for tickets.

Only in Dallas for a day with just a couple of hours free time, this was a very worthwhile diversion that really takes you back to life in the 60s and puts the tragic assassination of JFK into its historical context.

No, just one ticket per person. Entrance to the museum are in groups of 30 mins time slot. E.g 10:30, 11:00 slots. Once you get in (to the 6th floor, which is the musuem floor) you'll probably end up spending 1-2 hours there... More
