    There is a reason they don’t want people taking pictures here. I feel that this place barely qualifies as a museum and should probably be reclassified a walk through documentary. There is very little here in terms of exhibits and really the coolest part is being able to stand in the same spot that Lee Harvey Oswald shot the president from. If you are coming here hoping to see artifacts you will be disappointed by what probably numbered only 5 displays. Also, the museum really seemed to largely focus on the presidency as a whole when it came to the walk through tour and less was said about the assassination, it’s repercussions, and the conspiracy theories that float around about it. My final opinion about this place is on the price. The price was reasonable, just $16, however even though it was the middle of the week when I expected it to be slow there was still a 30 minute wait in line to get in. Also, the gift shop was pretty marked up. There were some things that were similar to the GWB museum in Dallas that were 3x the price. TLDR: If you are looking to stand where Lee Harvey Oswald shot President Kennedy from this place is alright. But it doesn’t really qualify as a museum.

    It was amazing to see it first hand and walk around Dealy Plaza. The displays are well put together and bring back a piece of history, but it also is very one sided and doesnt take in to consideration the aspects of the controversy surrounding the reports. The photos are amazing, the view from the seventh floor is incredible and strange all at once, but again, the information seems very tempered to the single gunman theory and lacks the consideration of all the different reports.

    Gave it a four star rating due to the historic significance. We did not do the audio tour and if we did that may have enhanced the experience. The place is small and when we where there it was crowded which took away from the experience.Despite this it is still pretty cool to check out and see the actual location where Oswald allegedly fired three shots from the sixth floor. The exhibits do a good mood moving you through that time period leading up to and after the assassination.

    A poster here seems to think that a ‘magic bullet’ was needed. But in fact it was not.. the trajectory of the single bullet that hit both victims line up perfectly with the wound forensics… through JFK’s base of the neck, out through his throat and entered JBC’s back near the armpit, etcThe same poster says the head shot frames are missing. From what I understand the museum deems these frames too gruesome for the exhibit.Head wound ballistics experts have noted that the head shot came from behind. And even in 1963 one physicist, when asked if the head shot came from in front, said “no physicist will tell you that” The video of that statement is on YouTube. The poster says ‘common sense’ tells us the head shot came from the front. Well, you need more than common sense to get a degree in science.One can use Google Images to see many photos of the motorcade all along the route, taken by professionals and amateurs alike. You can clearly see the seating positions which place the victims in line for the single bullet (The Oliver Stone movie has JFK & JBC aligned as in a regular car; in fact The Connallys were seated lower and more inboard than the Kennedys.. thus eliminating the need for any bullet having to zig-zag in mid air.I believe that Oswald as lone gunman is at least plausible, since science has shown that. I also lean toward ‘no conspiracy’ regarding the actual mechanics of the assassination since no one has proven otherwise. I suspect however, that there may have been a plot to cover up blunders & incompetence by security, possibly implicating the CIA/SS/FBI.

    Pretty cool and well worth the admission. The flow of the timeline focused, self-guided tour is well laid out and very detailed with lots of great exhibits.
