One of the most visited historic sites in Texas, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy; interprets the Dealey Plaza National Historic Landmark District and the John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza; and presents contemporary culture within the context of presidential history.
The Museum’s permanent exhibit, John F. Kennedy and the Memory of a Nation, is located on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Depository building, where evidence was found directly linking to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963.
Virtually unchanged from the 1963 warehouse appearance, the sixth floor’s immersive exhibit is a journey of the life and presidency of President Kennedy, the culture of the era, the reasons for his trip to Texas, and the facts and mystery surrounding his death.
Dallas was forever changed by this tragic event. Learn how our city and the world continue to be impacted by the death of President Kennedy. His history is now fading into memory, yet his legacy remains relevant.
Located at 411 Elm Street, the Museum is easily accessible via DART (three blocks west of the West End station and five blocks north of Union Station) and is open daily except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
