AAA Editor Notes
The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is at 411 Elm St. within the former Texas School Book Depository building, where evidence was found that linked to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The museum chronicles the assassination and legacy of 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. An audio tour, available in seven languages, ASL and a youth version in English, directs visitors through the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository building.

The “sniper's perch,” where police found three spent cartridge shells shortly after the November 22, 1963 shooting, has been reconstructed and enclosed in glass. Near the end of the self-guiding tour, visitors also view the glass-protected corner staircase, where a Mannlicher-Carcano rifle was found.

In addition, the museum showcases videos, artifacts and models that educate visitors about such topics as the social culture of the ‘60s and Kennedy's impact on America. Official forensic and ballistics tests, as well as other evidence used by the Warren Commission and other groups that investigated the assassination, are presented.

Special exhibits are frequently presented in a seventh-floor gallery.

Food is available. Time: Allow 1 hour, 30 minutes minimum.
