Visit Dallas: The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza was somewhere my husband wanted to visit while in Dallas, and I'm so glad we went, because it was so intriguing!

I admit - when it comes to the events surrounding John F. Kennedy's assassination, I knew just the basic timeline, but The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza really went into detail about what happened on November 22, 1963, as well as the events leading up to that fateful day.

The Sixth Floor Museum is the former Texas Book Depository where Lee Harvey Oswald worked, and it is where a "sniper's perch" and rifle were found after JFK's assassination. 

The archival video footage and photos really offered immense details of this tragic day. 

Coming upon the enclosed "sniper's perch" was quite eerie.  

What I found most interesting was the conspiracy theories (that continue to this day), as well as the extensive research and re-enactments that were done (and continue to be done) that made this infamous event so controversial.

It's a small museum, but the exhibits really take you back in time, giving you a minute-by-minute, even second-by-second, glimpse of how elation turned quickly into horror and then sorrow.     

New information and artifacts are continually reviewed in this historic case.  We may never know the truth as to how things really happened and why, but The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza presents information for visitors to peruse, and perhaps come up with their own conclusions.
