Located on the sixth and seventh floors of a warehouse, formerly the Texas Book Depository, the Dallas museum is housed in the exact spot where it’s reported Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK.


The museum’s permanent exhibit on the sixth floor features film clips, photographs, radio clips and artifacts highlighting the life, death and legacy of President Kennedy.

Visit the Museum Store + Café and Museum Bookstore to bring a piece of Kennedy history home with you.


The museum is open Monday 12–6 p.m. and Tuesday–Sunday 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Free audio guides are available with exhibit admission.
