Everything is very clearly marked and explained. It is an important piece of American History. Do the 6th floor Museum with this because the two tie together.

This is a free extension of the Sixth Floor Museum and a must-experience after spending at least a couple hours in the museum. Many of the witnesses that terrible day were standing in this plaza as the President was shot on Elm Street.

As you stand and look out over the grassy knoll, history slaps you in the face. It is unsettling but worth the trip. Disgustingly, I did see a limo tour with the car being the same model as the President's taking the route. Tasteless.

You've probably seen it on television countless times but walking through Dealey plaza really brings the history to life. You can judge for yourself but seeing the area in person made me wonder if some of the conspiracy theorists aren't correct in their ideas! Free...More
