This is a great area to explore when in Dallas. From the Dealy Plaza itself, to the Sixth Floor Museum, to the multiple historic buildings in the area, you cannot go wrong spending a half day here.

This is a must see if you are visiting the Dallas area. The history of this location is extremely deep. There are multiple locations to visit and absorb what took place here. The only negative thing I have to say is how the worn down and beat up X in the middle of the road indicating the area where JFK was assassinated seems to be unceremoniously placed. it just seems like someone went out with that paint brush and put an X in the road. I’m not sure how you could make that better, but that’s just the way it appears to me.

It is a place where you can see where an historic event happened and reflect The areas are well marked so you can make your own guesses.it is free to just walk around the areas. We skipped the actual museum part. Right before we went, we watched a show on it so we would refreshed on the information.

This historic site was interesting to explore. It is where JFK's assassination took place and has markers indicating key elements of the day.

Very interesting. Understand the controversy of it. No definitive answer as to what really happened. Multiple explanations are offered when you see it in person.

Visited on a Tuesday, and unfortunately the Museum wasn’t open. But that didn’t stop me from exploring. A nice security guard noticed that I was hoping to get in the Museum and showed me a WR code for a free audio walking tour.

It was emotional and very real with cars just driving by. They have markers where you can literally stand behind the fence in the Grassy Knoll. You can stand where Mr. Zapruder shot the famous film. You can look up at the (marked) window in the Texas School Book Depository from where Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK. And there is a painted white X in the middle of the road where he was shot.

I would have paid for the museum tour if it was open. But you can really get the gist of the entire event for free by just walking around on your own.

We walked through the Plaza after touring the 6th Floor Museum. It's nicely laid out but there are several heavily trafficked roads adjacent.

well, its like going back in history, from the grassy knoll, to the xxx's on the pavement where jfk was shot, just below the museum, so after museum visit, you can walk around where it actually happened

Along with the Sixth-Floor Museum, the grassy knoll and all are important historical sites. Fortunately for visitors, there wasn't a lot of traffic on New Year's Day, so folks could stand out on the middle of the road where the X marks the place where JFK was killed.
