I would give 10 stars. This was worth every dollar. Not so great for young kids due to the intense history details. But if they are along there is no graphic depiction. They just might be bored. The tour is extremely well-done. You will have a very clear understanding of this historic event. If you immerse yourself you could spend two or more hours here.

A must see museum for anyone coming to Dallas. Especially if you are a history buff like myself! Very well done museum that gives you an audio guided tour. I would pause mine to read the exhibits which included more information than the audio guide. My ticket was included in the City Pass that I bought so it also allowed me to skip the line that was waiting to pick up their ticket which saved me about 20 minutes! The staff was also very nice and polite.

I wouldn't have chosen to go here myself, but the friend I was with made the plans. We took an audio tour of the whole place which was about 2 hours long. It's a sad story with mostly pictures and a few old videos along the way. It was pretty interesting. We took pics on the shooting spots in the road, and the grassy knoll.

Fascinating place to understand an important day in our country. Audio guide was given and you roamed around the sixth floor museum. It describe me JFK before presidency and the climate that our country was in before and during the start of his presidency. Cold War, Social and racial issues, the events of the prior couple days before he was shot. This gives you good time period to set your mind in for that fateful day in November 1963. The rapid reporting and investigation that follows. After done with the museum go outside and see the X’s on the road, indicating where he was shot.

This is truly a unique and incredible place. It can be quite overwhelming with all of the information provided, but it is so worth it. This is a perfect example of a museum done right. There is a huge amount of information given during the self guided tour and there is so much to see. It is quite impressive to be in the same place where it all occured. I would highly recommend adding this to your itinerary when visiting Dallas!
