AAA Editor Notes

Ruth Paine House Museum offers guided 90-minute tours departing from the Ruth Paine House Museum Visitors' Center at 801 W. Irving Blvd. At the visitor center, guests can watch video interviews featuring Ruth Paine, former owner of the house in which Lee Harvey Oswald stashed his rifle the night before President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Oswald and his wife also were overnight guests at the house at times. A van then transports guests to the nearby 1,250-square-foot house, which has been restored inside and out to its 1960s-era appearance. In some rooms, a video technique called Pepper's Ghost recreates key conversations and events that occurred there. Food and beverages are prohibited inside the museum. Guided tours are available.
$12; free (ages 0-11). Tickets must be purchased online in advance; phone for more information. A maximum of 12 people is allowed on each tour.
