Sixth Floor Museum At Dealey Plaza

dealey_camLocated in downtown Dallas TX on Elm Street, inside the Dallas County Administration Building (formerly known as the
Texas School Book Depository), is the Sixth Floor Museum where three gunshots were fired that allegedly killed President John F. Kennedy in November 1963.

The facility actually occupies both the sixth and seventh floors of the building including a reading room overlooking Dealey Plaza as well as a nearby gift shop and cafe. Approximately 45,000 photographs, documents and artifacts are part of the museum’s collection. Originating founder and museum curator Gary Mack recently passed away on July 15th after a prolonged illness.

The idea of Lee Harvey Oswald acting as the lone shooter in the assassination of JFK seems prevalent within the exhibits. Not much else is offered about other conspiracy theories possibly implicating Fidel Castro’s involvement in the shooting.

The museum claims to have 325,000 visitors annually since opening in 1989.
